I find peace in art. There is a place within ourselves where we connect into something peaceful and bigger than ourselves. It is this timeless place that I seek when I am sculpting. Hours slide by, and I lose time easily here. It is for this reason I didn’t delve into my art until I had the freedom to “lose time”
Philosophy and symbolism creep into my art as I express values and even political thoughts. The piece may be of a bird, a dog or child, even a portrait of dear friend yet it is the passion and intention that I want the viewer to feel and interpret within their own thoughts. My ultimate goal is to take the viewer to that timeless place with in them.
