patient enough, quiet enough to pay attention to the story".
I've always done life drawing so I see figurative sculpture as an extension to those classes. I sculpt from drawings sketched with a nude model. I enjoy working with the human body as its represents universal human experiences and emotions and transcends cultures and time lines. Its a source of inspiration and an ongoing challenge. My emphasis on the human form is in its fluidity of continuous line like the constant flow of energy through the body. I deliberately discard the detail.Working with clay is like working with a second skin and I try not to have a preconceived idea and let the clay bend to the model in front of me.
