In my work I mainly deal with the human form. Human issues, such as the delicate balance

between the physical and the spiritual, are the main themes in my work.

I am interested in the duality of the everyday life and the desire to aspire to the sublime.

To these human struggles I try to give shape, to bring them to fruition in tangible form.

I work in a variety of materials: clay, papier mache, bronze and plaster.  

My working process is very open: I begin with a vague notion of what I want to create.

The sculpture is a continuous sketch that in a sudden moment comes to completion.

My works don’t necessarily represent clear human figures, often

 they are abstractions or essences of forms: hints of human figures, animals, and

landscapes. Creating art has always been a vehicle for my self-expression. Sculpting is a creative,

emotional, spiritual, and intellectual pursuit for me.
