My art is informed by a rewarding career of serving amputees in the field of prosthetics for over 40 years, which provided me with an appreciation for the human spirit’s capacity to transform loss into triumph. It endowed me with an eye for the wonders of the human body, but also a heart to sense the essence of the person before me, which stimulated my yearning to express those insights in sculpture. In my sculptures, what both intrigues and excites me is to successfully create an image that, at first glance, grabs the viewer’s attention. Figurative sculpture is something that nearly everyone can relate to. With 3-D art, it is particularly satisfying for me to succeed in capturing your interest from all sides of the piece! I am not confident that my sculpture is complete until the sensuality and dynamism as well as the message of the piece are compelling.
