Artist's Statement

My recent work explores a theme of mythological bird-figures in large- and small-scale sculpture. The simplified forms and human-bird portraits were initially inspired by ancient devotional images from Egypt, Greece, and Persia. They have grown naturally out of my earlier female figures and gestural tree forms.

To arrive at an expressive shape with psychological depth, I first create small sculptures in clay based on observation, intuitive gesture, and personal or historic references. Then I build life-size or larger sculptures in cement, metal, or transparent wire mesh. In these works, the additional use of portraits, mirrors, and reflective materials draws viewers into self-contemplation, while conveying a central, illuminated presence.
