Thoughts on my work…
Illuminating our connection to nature — that we humans ARE nature, is what I hope to communicate in my work. These figures, made of earth, are an elemental dance. Sculpted with moist, sensuous clay, dried, and transformed in the fire, they are stained and painted to highlight texture, add color.
With this in mind, I am inspired to explore nature in my inner city neighborhood of Minneapolis, and in my own back yard.
