The subtlety and magic of figure sculpture gives me great joy. There is nothing like representing the human body in terms of expressiveness and empathy. For me, creating excellent figures is a matter of emotion and understanding of aspects of a person's life. I seek to represent struggle, particularly the difficulties that people with lifelong disabilities face.
Learning figure sculpture has also had a practical side, allowing me to explore the mechanics of human anatomy in detail, as well as being a very challenging grounds on which to learn mold-making and casting.
