About the Artist:
Creatures are my sweet spot and a recurring theme. I love creating monsters, odd people, cartoon characters, demons, gnomes, and so forth. I strive to recreate and share the joy of childhood by putting my imagination directly into a sculpture or onto a piece of paper. For me, there is a magic that comes with that -- I feel it during the creative process and it’s an intense and wonderful thing. I try to cultivate this and share it with my viewers.
My assemblage pieces often start when I'm inspired by the character and personality of a particular object. Sometimes an object looks like a face or a body, and sometimes it looks like a little vehicle or perch for a sculpted creature. Lately I’ve been enjoying making miniatures.
