ABOUT THE ARTIST 

My main expression in sculpture, drawing and painting has resulted in unique shapes, moods and inspiration. Translucent stone and my joy of light influences form and shadow. Modeling clay by hand is a passionate element to creativity. Sketching from life is exciting when I capture the gesture and the color of the expression. Poetry helps me understand my feelings.

My sculpture expresses harmony and strength, spontaneity and continuity. Themes of birth, movement and infinite curves dominate my work. A variety of natural forms and human nature provides endless inspiration. A gesture of love, a person’s face or body, or the opening of a leaf provides me with living models.
