Artist's Statement

These artworks are from a current interest and developing story filling my studio that has surprisingly spun off a group of clay sculptures and collages from magazines. I am interested in transformations; of what I see in a person and what they see of themselves, or at least I hope to make a compelling sculpture or painting that conveys the notion of simultaneous self-images. Maybe an idea from the future self seen as passing through the former self.
