I have always enjoyed the expressiveness that an artist can capture in the human figure. I began as a painter and was introduced to sculpting in my undergraduate at the University of Oklahoma. After graduation, I worked for a sculptor on the Oklahoma Landrun Monument for 6 years. During my time in college and working on the monument, I became increasingly interested in sculpting and began my path as a sculptor.
My sculpture uses the human figure as an allegory and the personification of abstract concepts. People relate to the figure easily and tapping into this familiarity allows an artist to display a wide array of emotions that broaden the communication between the artist and the viewer. Through my work, I want the viewer to be able to recall their own experiences and develop new connections to a visual representation.
