I submerge myself in sculpting. Working, warming and forming the clay in my hands becomes a meditative practice, which quiets and frees my mind from the everyday, information deluge of our world. My work often reflects natural themes that explore the relationship between humans and nature. As flora and fauna embrace the human form, the realization of being one with nature emerges. The more I create, the more I discover that my desire to be among the natural world is rooted deep within and I hope that for a brief moment, viewers are able to sense their immediate connection with the landscape, in which they live.
