I perceive myself as a storyteller, one that might through my work, inspire others to become consciously aware of the collective human experience.I love discovering the many unexpected role- models in religion ,mythology, art and the collective analysis handed down through generations to be paid attention to or not.
I start my work with thorough research of the theme to be portrayed via a sculpture. I take great care to describe, in a short text to go with the sculpture, the essence of the piece offered to you. However, it is important to note that since the themes are collective and thus often come out of the collective unconscious, there is a strong possibility for the onlooker to discover meanings that I did not know were there. Each work can become a personal expression of the buyer every bit as much as it is an expression of the artist. That is the beauty of it.
As in prehistoric cave paintings, I seek to portray the large idea. I avoid having a piece too analytical or copied from a real person’s countenance; to do so would be a mere copy of one person’s particular physiology and thus have no collective value at all.
The human experience, in my view, is not so much an experience of a male or female as it is simply an all-encompassing experience of being human. That I sculpt the themes more often as a female and far from physically perfect as not to interfere with the story told, is merely because the form and feeling is my own.
