ARTIST STATEMENT:

Sculpting is my passion, and my pieces are the result of my emotions and the fascination of being able to express them in a variety of forms. I love working with clay to then be able to cast the final pieces in different materials. The entire process is thrilling and fascinating. Playing with harmony and balance my aim is to create sculptures that transmit emotion and sensitivity. Creating is a journey, and the final creation is often far from the starting point. My heart’s desire is that my work gives as much pleasure to the public, as it gives me in bringing those pieces together to life. Knowing that my sculptures are being cherished and treasured by the new owners is a magical feeling.
