Statement

Artist Statement

For me, sculpture represents possibility in life. I am intrigued by the life of an idea as it travels from mind, to paper, and then transforms, given strength through metal to exist fully shaped in a place of its own. The idea, given form, now breathes and moves, interacting fully with the viewer in a shared dimension.

My sculptures manifest the idea that we are in a perpetual state of becoming. Highly inspired by the elements of nature and the intrigue of human emotions, the concepts originate in the journey through landscapes of both earth and soul.

These pieces play with the idea of commitment to change or being emotionally impelled to change. They depict the process of resolving the conflict created within transitions because it is difficult to trust when entering the unknown. Resolution of this conflict brings about life's negotiations by tapping into our intrinsic strengths to move us all forward for growth, and a returning to balance.

Each piece exists to evoke the contemplation of universal experiences that lead to these life transitions in thought or circumstance, and ultimately change our structural composition. In this journey where there is little of certainty, it is most necessary to find that which is intrinsically at core, in order to ready each being for what is coming next.
