I have found a way to give voice to my deeper creativity and to bring forth everything within me through the three-dimensional world of ceramic sculpture,  My inspirations for working with the free-form and intricate art form of sculpture include fantasy movies and special effects design.  Ceramic sculpture gives me an opportunity to give "life" to what exists in my heart and imagination.
