Two things people always ask me;
where do you get your ideas and how long does it take to make
To both questions I reply "
I don't know "
I believe my art is a combination
of everything I've seen in my life, plus something inexplicable.
Sometimes it seems a piece creates
itself and I just watch. I try to keep track of how much time
I put into the scultures but have found it impossible. Sometimes
it takes months just to do the research and then there is the
time I spend just staring at the thing. When I sculpt an animal,
it's the personality of the piece that always surprises me; the
elements of form, line and color coming together to create expression.
I believe I simplify the form to
present the essence of the animal.
