Artist's Statement

I am a person of contradictions. My work expresses the internal dialogue I have with myself. I use many materials....paperclay, wire, silk organza, human hair, feathers, gut, paint which is applied, layered, sanded, layered again.
Fractured Angelics is the desire to covet objects, fetishes and such. I must have that! I think about it over and over in my head till I get it. But there is an opposing side that seeks emptiness, space, quiet, pure elegance, simple but powerful form. Sculpting puts me in that space. The human form must stand alone and be authentic.
The Angelic Collection has been my passion for the past 4 years. Are they relics or fetishes? I have always reached spiritual enlightenment through my addictions and compulsions. To have more of everything and to have nothing. This has been my most personal work thus far.
