About the Artist
They all told me I'd grow out of it, but horses are a never-ending source of inspiration for me.
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 has given me a strong theoretical and conceptual foundation, but my sculpting technique is almost entirely self-taught. It has taken me many years to develop my unique style.
I sculpt with ceramic, and also air dry clay, and paper, often mixing mediums to take advantage of each media's strengths. My quiet, yet gestural sculptures are richly layered with contrasting shapes and textures, often with hidden elements for the curious observer to discover. I like to push the boundaries of traditional materials and concepts to develop art that both challenges and delights the viewer.
