“My approach to sculpture is to create pieces through interpretive realism. I strive to capture the form and beauty of my subjects by incorporating them into a pleasing composition through various elements including movement, shape and texture. Working from life is essential. Not only do I need to understand anatomy, but I need to comprehend my subjects’ personality and subtle gestures in order to portray them accurately in sculpture.”
