I was classically trained in traditional academies and some of the old masters continue to influence me. Yet sometimes I prefer a contemporary approach.
I create out of a need to remember and consider.
A need to stay balanced on unsettled ground.
I reflect on beauty – its duality of strength and fragility.
I'm intrigued by the human condition and the natural world – my work reflects that range.
The process may change, but the intrinsic tendency to create never leaves me.
I try to listen to my inner voice – with trust.
Each piece brings new challenges and discoveries.
