STORY TELLING

Faded memories from childhood come to life from a block of clay. Out of control children playing dress up in fox stoles, striped stockings and soldier’s uniforms from the attic. Each of my sculptures have a story to tell.

Each figure is one of a kind and hand built from clay and sometimes fragments of fabric found in the corner of a European antique shop. You may see drawing, painting and embroidery adorning the surface.

Nature always inspires. My childhood was spent wandering the forest and fields that surrounded our home. Summer days were spent foraging for berries and wild flowers and in the winter snow shoes and ice skates on the pond out behind the barn. All of the time dreaming and pretending.

No neighborhood children on a rural farm, just my siblings and  wildlife coupled with  fairy tales and legends. Try to never lose the fantasy worlds  and dreams you once held as a child.

I love the figure

Whether it is sculpting or painting my work tends to be figurative. That’s probably why I never got into making functional ware on the potter’s wheel. And yes, it’s okay if you call them dolls. Because of their size they are doll like and feminine. Most of my work is kiln fired clay, but I often mix it up with mixed media parts.

I live in Florida where I work as a Professor of Art . When  I am not in the classroom there is a very good chance I am either in my studio or traveling. Both feed my soul. Life is for living and being happy. Do something to make yourself happy.

Make what makes you

We all bring our life experiences to our art. If you copy the work of another it’s not yours. You’re trying to sing anothers song. You may feel it, but it’s not yours. Sketch, look, and feel. A sketchbook can serve as a research vessel. Holding the answers to myseties inside of you.
