I make a thorough study of my subjects including behavior and anatomy. I take that information along with my feelings for the subject, roll it around inside me and create.
My sculptures are bronze, created by using the lost wax process. I start by creating an armature using a flexible aluminum wire that allows me to twist and turn my subjects into their unique expressive poses. The characters are then built up using small pieces of soft oil-based clay. I work loosely. The direction and intensity of the clay is related to the structure of the animal, the movement and the emotion being portrayed.
