About the Artist

Statement

Serenity and movement are essential to my work. The flowing of Art Nouveau leave calm and peaceful feeling. When I work with human figures, the focus of my work is the connection, which is the reason that I love to work with the hands. Either figurative or abstract the faces are contemplative, like beholders and sometimes they don’t have a face. Everything is connected and has a purpose in life. I love clay, because it can be used for sculpture as well as for pottery. My favorite technique is carving especially for sculpture and graphics as it is more lasting giving more character. I recently discovered that music lets me work from memory more easily and lets me switch from sculpture to pottery, making every piece unique.
