I am a sculptor and a painter. I love to work with the figure and portraits and working from life. For me Art is about connection. It is time spent with someone or something to really observe and understand and relate to something other then yourself. It is contemplation, empathy, and having the ability to showcase that connection through my work. We are in a time where deep connection and understanding of others and the world is whizzed right by and instant gratification is more sought after. I believe this deep connection is important and fulfilling and part of humanity. If I can get the viewer to stop and take time to look and relate as well I have done something important in todays time.
