The principal subject of my work is the human figure. I try to bring life into my sculptures and this aim gives me my motivation for sculpting. It is the search for harmony between proportions, movement, suspension and volumes in space that inspires and fascinates me. I like to work thematically to explore the potential of my subject. Dansers or acrobats, children playing or scenes from everyday life may inspire my creative process. I am a modeller because I use materials that enable me to add or take away volumes until the sculpture is complete. Clay and plaster, resin, metal, wire, bronze; the magic of these materials, their qualities and textures, are a constant source of interest for me. I hope my sculptures bring out the joy and intensity that I feel making them.
