Artists Statement 

My subject matter has remained rooted in themes of nature, feminine beauty

and animals. Sculpture's are created with the intent of bringing a figure to

life that is both whimsical and elegant simultaneously. A successful piece

exudes something of a life force in an apparent though ephemeral personality.

The paradox in the work that the up cycled material is commonly disposed of in

ways that effect the very creatures I am creating is important to me.

One artistic goal is for my work to speak, draw attention to the use of

recycled materials

(that are intentionally not obvious) :  

That all works made from recycled material do not have to look like the

recycled parts they were crafted from  in the final work.  

I am saddened by what is happening to our wildlife and environment

and create my work in  an intuitive manner of conversation  

between up cycled / recycled  materials mixed with compounded cement,

steel  and a strong affinity:  appreciation for all things in nature.
