I have always loved doing things with my hands and sculpture was the next natural extension of that love when I decided to dedicate my remaining years to art. I have always loved the realism of the Masters like Michelangelo, Bernini and Rodin but also have always loved the works of the abstract Masters like Brancusi, Boccioni and Henry Moore. I have tried to combine these styles of observation and emotion. I am attempting to capture manís inner struggle, quiet contemplation, expectation and peace. When asked what my art means, I like to defer to the form and let it speak for itself.
I feel strongly that my sculpture is my statement. It is hard to put into words what my art means or how Iím feeling about it while Iím in the process of creating it. I know when itís working for me and I know when Iím finished with a piece. It tells me when itís done. If different people see different things and have different emotions with my work then I have been successful.
