Artist Statement

I sculpt beasts that tell stories.

 

 In the tradition of a beast tale, my unpolished creatures reflect our society in ways that are uncomfortably familiar.  Social, political and personal themes are

explored through humor and nostalgia.  

 

The audience is invited to laugh now, cry later and enjoy the show.

 

These beasts are typically sculpted solid in clay, hollowed and obsessively covered with hand carved imagery.  Influenced by years of experience in set design, large-scale fabrication and themed construction, new generations of work also

incorporate a variety of mixed media and sculpting techniques.
