    My work draws upon the century-long tradition of handmade sculpture. I would describe my pieces as visceral; the sculpting technique I use when working with clay reveals a flesh-like quality. As such, my work has everything to do with the materiality of life. My sculptures wear the heaviness of being; their surfaces reveal every sign of corrosion that originates in the confrontation of the body’s skin to the abrasiveness of time and life itself. Often larger than life, they are turned inward; silent and introverted, their reticent pose heightening the expressiveness of the emotion they hold captive. These works scream in silence.
