About the Artist
They all told me I'd grow out of it, but for me horses are an enduring inspiration.
My creative expression has always been driven by a deep passion for horses, and yet it took many years for me to realize that making art was an important part of my life.
My education in art history gave me a strong theoretical and conceptual foundation, but my technique is almost entirely self-taught. It has taken me many years to develop my unique style.
I chose to specialize in sculpture because three-dimensional works requires not only aesthetic considerations, but structural problem-solving as well. Each new work is a question to be answered or at the very least considered.
I currently work with air dry clay, ceramic, and paper, often mixing mediums to take advantage of each media's strengths. By consistently pushing the boundaries of materials, I create richly layered sculptures that can both challenge and delight the viewer.
