Statement:

STATEMENT:

I want to sculpt emotions, emotions that you can put on like a skin and breath in a moment frozen in time. I want you to feel another’s life, for just that moment to see we are all one below that surface, that surface of skin no matter the color the shape or origin.

My figures serve as my storytellers in the world, telling stories of the sacred and the precious, capturing moments of our day, our vulnerabilities, and our strengths. They are the quiet echoes of life’s delicate balance, telling of the fragility in both life and their own form; how far one can reach, which step may be too many.
