"As a sculptor, I use a wide variety of media, which allows for expressive diversity and the development of three-dimensional space. The media range from bronze, clay, stone, and wood in sculpture, to painting media, collage, and mobiles. I pursue the choreography of light and form in images to express the vitality and movement of a given moment. These might be the play of light across water, fireworks, animals play-fighting, or humans in flight. I choose subjects in order to capture the nuances of gesture and energy in motion, to document the intricate dance of beings in nature."
