I am drawn to the oddities in art, particularly in figurative sculpture.  My work generally illustrates my attraction to peculiar or abstract forms with stoic facial expressions.  Although I use varied materials, polymer clay in its many applications is a favorite because of its forgiving nature and unique properties. 

There is a freedom in creating and as an artist I embrace the imperfections left in the wake of the creative process.  Here the human element is most evident, and it can be as provocative as our artistic signature.
