About THE WORK

Every good work of art should have at least ten meanings.  -Walter de Maria

These mixed media sculptures, made mostly from clay, represent balance through dichotomous ideas and are in support of protest, revolution, and protection of the environment.

These sculptures are made from clay, wood, tesserae, wire, paint, glitter, glaze, rope, and lights.  Each skull is handmade from clay.  The sculptures represent balance through a coupling of opposite principles: masculine and feminine, nature and nurture, life and death, light and dark, growth and decay, celebration and mourning, past and future. 

My art aims to be a voice for the empowerment of people in need in an increasingly global community.  Each sculpture has its own personality and is a meditation on life's condition.
