Artist StatementI create to emulate my Creator. Sculpture in clay is a personal communing with God and an expression of the wonderful gifts which He has bestowed upon me. The human figure, the face in particular, has consumed me since childhood with an intense desire to portray what I see in this world: the beauty, the sorrow and our inextricable connection to the Father.
