I create figurative sculpture that celebrates the strength and diversity of the human spirit. My goal is to engage, inspire and provoke viewers with my work.
I am drawn to earthy, tactile textures and symbolic impressions and love to play with exaggerating, simplifying and elongating the human form. Working with clay allows for a direct, spontaneous approach, which enables me to capture the spirit of the figure. While I still plan to work in clay, I enjoy working in a variety of media, including, driftwood, resin, hydra stone, metal, ciment fondu and concrete.
Gardening as well as sculpting is a passion. Recently I have been focusing on ways to incorporate my work into garden settings.
I have returned to my roots on Vancouver Island after spending over 30 years in Calgary, teaching art, and raising my family. I am enjoying the opportunity to focus on my work as an artist.
My work is in private collections in Western Canada, the US, the UK, Europe and North Africa.
