“For me, sculpture is all about how light and shadows create form, texture and dimension. Although I enjoy drawing and creating the illusion of mass, I much prefer working in three dimensions and the tactile pleasures it provides. My artistic themes focus on beauty, love, and the interrelationship between people. Gesture, expression and the sense of movement are important.”
