My early career in the theatre put me in good stead to search for an Art form which could
encompass many of the same senses and emotions used as an actor.
I needed to create and there was
sculpture, which was always a visual passion for me. My unconscious need to touch, to see, to communicate, finally came together for me in sculpture.
The medium of stone lives a life as a form in itself and is the most important force in my art. Because stone is so demanding and unforgiving, it provides the greatest challenge and warrants the greatest respect. Each finished piece represents love, pain and a need to create again. Other sculpting media are important as well. Using clay, which can ultimately be transformed into bronze, is a valuable and traditional discipline. The working of a clay piece is sensitive to the touch but is forgiving and extremely fulfilling in its creation. It has it's own beauty but more than that, it feeds my passion and allows me to translate more freely into stone.
