As a representative artist, my on-going lifetime goal is to create sculptures in wood and stone, which most accurately capture and represent the figure, animal or human, in true character; to try to portray its natural form of energy and characteristics.
I focus my art explorations on two classic methods of sculptural expression: primarily, "subtractive" (carving away to release the figures within.) This is represented in my wood and stone wildlife and human sculptures. In addition, I work in the "additive" process (building up) to depict life-like species in the forms of birds, butterflies and fish; these I create with a variety of plant fiber papers.
Thus, by alternating the processes of subtractive and additive sculpture, I am able to find a physical and mental balance in my personal exploration of creativity.
