The human form has been abstracted since the beginning of ART making. Because we are all familiar with what people
look like and indeed we are a widely variable lot one can take great liberties with human form and it is still
I like to take these liberties. For my sculpture, some of the parts are modern, and some are 150 years
old and dug by hand outside the refuse dumps of 19th century factories in Germany. I buy them on eBay after
someone's grandmother dies and it is resurrection central in my studio as I Frankenstein them back together into
disturbing friends of my imagination.
My paintings are my initial foray into two-dimensional work. The imagery is figurative and is an extension of my
porcelain baby doll sculptures. The stylized human forms reside on fantasy landscapes or Creation Myths. In some
pieces the figure and landscapes merge employing visual tricks intended to confuse the brain.
