"I am fascinated by the human body and how it functions. My sculpture honors the beauty of these traditional forms. It is essential, however, for sculpture to present not only an idea but an underlying emotional narrative as well. As the emphasis of my work shifts from the purely figurative toward the emotive,
I am eager to capture the intimate interactions that occur."
