In my sculpture practice, I aim to give expression to the fascinating worlds of life forces, soul qualities, and individual gestures in manifold biomorphic forms. Working with different materials, I extract pure-form elements, such as convex and concave, from natural figures and objects, freeing them from prior associations and meanings. A simple leaf can become a source of inspiration for surfaces varying in shape and movement, which combine to create something new. With a rounded starting point, I add on a variety of disparate angles, diverse curves, and twisting planes. I bring out particular tensions and transitions, gradually enlivening the form and imbuing it with feeling and personality.
