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.
