Statement

My sculpture is life, retold though a filter of symbolism and allegory.  The work I produce is inspired by what surrounds me every day as a mother, a farmer, and artist. In each piece there is a story behind its creation; they are pieces of me, like a personal journal.  Each sculpture represents my maternal experience, and the metamorphosis of that experience as mother and child grow, learn and demonstrate their moral and physical understanding of the world.  My work hints at something beyond the surface; a concept that reveals something beautiful, or enlightening that wasn’t easily understood.   I wanted to show the learning, growing and changing aspects of our lives; in the same manner old allegorical tales revealed the true nature of the human condition.

 

The metaphorical nature of the work asks the viewer to think outside of the norm, and into a place where the moral of my story is relevant. This body of work relates to the concerns and observations I have had as a mother raising a child with autism.  The viewer is given a glimpse into the internal experience I have with the development of child relationships when autism is a factor. Concepts and themes that encompass this body of work include the relationships siblings, peers, and mothers have with one another, and the social dynamics therein.
