In the past, my sculpture has expressed my ideas metaphorically. These new pieces have evolved through my search for a more direct method of dealing with my thoughts and feelings. Consequently, the style I've used in working the clay is more direct.

I've used the figure as a vehicle for my ideas. I want to capture in an instant, a true feeling, whether it be sorrow or joy. I'm striving to convey a moment in time, a moment of stress and passion. I use only a few tools; a knife and a two-by-four. The pieces are conceived in violence, but they show strength, hope, and the courage to go forward. They are an homage to survivors of oppression.
