It all started with a horse named Piero that used to walk past my window while working in my studio. I had just returned to making sculptures and was inspired to begin sculpting animals in my surroundings.
The Chickens, the fast moving and awkward looking creatures, challenged my understanding of proportion and anatomy. The process of “making it” challenged my patience. I would like to call this very personal installation, that was created during a time of loss: Live, Life with Love.
Imagine my jack rabbit to be the moon rabbit, a mythical figure who lives on the moon, constantly pounding the elixir of happy long life.
Fish out of water,
-what it would be like if our oceans rivers and lakes were cleaned.
With my installations I want to provoke and invite to think and rethink, our place in society and influence we have on our environment
Before I create a sculpture I sketch it over and over.
The following examples are watercolor drawings that I drew in a hotel room in Clarksvill Tennessee. Each day I drew a different fruit from the breakfast buffet.
