In my art, I create sculptural personalities of unrepentant whimsy. I work primarily with the “notion of the button.” I am drawn to everyday objects that are eager to assume new identities and new roles in their existence. The mood of each piece would arise intuitively from a wide variety of personally chosen materials and innovative techniques. Through art, I am able to recreate my life experiences in sculpture. My family of a dozen siblings remains my greatest source of inspiration. This, and my sense of material curiosity is what fuels my art.
