Komorebi; a Japanese word that translates to "the scattered light that filters through when sunlight shines through trees". Komorebi forms a common thematic thread throughout my ongoing 'Treescape' paintings. This term captures the elongated shadows of the late afternoon and the abstract patterns created by this scattered light.


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.
