My work is inspired by nature. In particular, I am
captivated by the beauty of birds and their ability to fly. While completing
my Master of Fine Arts degree in sculpture at Georgia State University,
I traced my ancestor William Bartram's (America's first artist/naturalist)
eighteenth-century journey through the Southeast. This experience left
me with an over-whelming spiritual feeling, which I strive to capture
in my work.
Working with a variety of media, ranging from abstract
to realistic, I set out to capture each species unique characteristics,
as they are revealed in a moment frozen in time. Some of my compositions
depict the tension between wildlife and the viewer, suggesting the encroachment
of man on the natural environment. Form, space, light, texture, and
color work to illustrate a harmonious, thought-provoking sculpture,
whether in wood, stone, bronze, or steel.
