Figurative Sculptor

I am fascinated and enchanted with the process of molding clay into female figurative sculptures. My “girls” are hand-built using white earthenware or Phoenix clay.  Each figure’s shape, expression, curves, texture and movement slowly emerge from the clay whether they are seated, standing or prone in realistic positions. Each sculpture is one of a kind and is created to reflect a poised, inner calm, self-confidence, and a degree of sensitivity to engage the viewer. The clothing reflects my love of fashion and texture, while the poses reflect my study of yoga and dance.  Each clay sculpture is finished with a glaze or bronze patina.  Molding the clay to the likeness and movement of the human figure is indeed a challenge, and I am rewarded with great personal satisfaction when a person observes, interacts and enjoys my sculpture.
