I’ve been enriched with a loving family and a mother who bought art from all over the world into my everyday life. Looking back at my childhood, I know that creative energies have always been with me.
I received my BFA and MFA in Sculpture in Chicago. The whole creative process is a mystery to me. Creative energies are always around me, some more obvious than others.
I am always aware of my surroundings and I feel that I channel life into images through my artwork. The connection can be made through a visual experience, a voice, a word, listening to music, an inner feeling, my imagination or my soul. It’s amazing how and why these images appear and take precedence. If only to capture my feelings and thoughts in a sculpture, that to me is the essence of being an artist.
I continue to work with a wide range of materials, including clay, mixed media and bronze.
