Artist Statement

Monsters on board, trolls, goblins, ogres, gremlins, we all endure our own personal demons. Growth as an individual requires a long hard look at these monsters in order for them to be accepted and understood. Some will judge and condemn the monsters never accepting they are even there, forever denying an important piece of themselves. Others will choose to ignore what’s there leaving the monsters alone in the dark where they will grow and fester eventually to overcome and create a true monster. Just as in humans, within every lump of clay a creature is hiding, it is a privilege to bring the brute out into the light. Tapping my own inner demons the work flows naturally and the hidden “monsters” in the clay emerge. The work attempts to better understand and explore the beings that inhabit our psyche and the trials and emotions we all face as we struggle to embrace our inner monsters.
