Artist statement

I currently strive to accommodate a multitude of priorities in my work, namely a deep commitment to observing and engaging in a subject in order to produce work that contains some of the gravity and physicality of the natural world. After attending school, I would like to continue to experiment with the skills I have attained, striving to create compelling works of realist art throughout my life.

The goal of my artistic career is to bring thoughtfulness, inspiration and sensitivity to others with my sculptures and drawings. By employing a style with emphasis on the naturalistic and organic, and by working with ideas invoked by the contemporary world that surrounds us and basic emotions that have been a consistent part of the human experience, I hope to engage the viewer and provide them with a new perspective on the aspects of life upon which the work touches.
