As an artist, I explore the beauty and design of nature through the study of the human form

When I sculpt, I set up a rational framework for a piece through empirical knowledge, which gives appropriate constraints that my intuitive understanding can successfully play within. Intuition needs experience to guide it, and logic is dry without an emotional component. I am trying to achieve sculptures that balance between these modes of processing visual information; the physical and philosophical, form and concept. There is a strong dialogue between practices and thinking, a direct relationship between the hand and head. This balance is echoed everywhere in nature, and is a constant source of inspiration. Potential for tactile, emotional, and physical connections between objects, space, people and nature are what draws me sculpt.
