Capturing that magic moment when emotion makes a statement…

Fascinated by what makes folks tick, I’ve curated my art as such, to tell stories through portraits. I believe every face reveals a unique truth, so by unmasking an estimable quality in my subjects, I unveil the authentic individual.

In sculpting their likenesses, I construct an emotional snapshot of each individual, recreating a bit of their story with an underlying sentiment.

Working primarily in clay, my work leverages a classical style to convey the themes and passions of our modern times - and I focus on emphasizing and drawing the viewer to these concepts, with intense focus on expression and anatomical detail.

My objective is to make the observer feel deeply and to ponder the encouraging message in my art. My goal is to ultimately challenge, inspire, and compel the viewer to see the world through a hopeful lens.
