ARTIST STATEMENTS

General: When I was twelve, I came across a small park where I found six life-size statues of scantily clad young women. They were so life-like and touchable I was stunned. They may be there yet, forever lovely.

Now I create my own sculptures in bronze. The learning process is never-ending. Along with mastering the materials, there is a slow understanding of anatomy that underlies the quickest tool stroke. The discipline of careful observation is so ingrained that I find myself studying people's smallest gestures often to the annoyance of friends and the suspicion of strangers.

I try to incorporate a form and gesture into my sculptures that will give them presence and beauty. I hope that you will find them life-like and touchable and that the experience will bring you joy.

Process: Figurative art always tells a story. That story may be ambiguous, but it is always a part of the viewing experience. Figurative art is a story about us, for us and is us.

To me, a piece of art has three components. The first is the artist's concept. The second is what the piece itself seems to say independent of the artist's intent. The third and most important component is the myriad of thoughts, feelings, knowledge and imagination that the viewer brings to the art. It is the combination that gives art it's meaning.
