As a sculptor, I use traditional materials, clay and plaster. I often combine my work with found objects…steel mountings and photographs that in 2D juxtapose themselves against the three dimensionality of my work.
In addition to working on my own, I founded two artists’ studios in which, as a group, local artists come together to work from a live model. The first incarnation of this project was GOFIGURE SCULPTING STUDIOS, hosted in an old mill building in Holyoke. From the sculpture studio an arts community developed to the pleasure and benefit of all. Out of that experience came the second, GOFIGURE OPEN DRAWING STUDIO, which is a “drop in” once per week, live model studio, that continues to meet today.
When not sculpting or drawing, I can be found looking through the lens of my camera…more recently photographing with my iPhone and creating digitally edited images using computer software, and apps.
