Artist Statement
The human body has always been a source of inspiration for artists, each imbuing it with their own personal vision. I’ve always found myself drawn to figurative works, with my own approach evolving over the years. I see the figures I create as self-portraits, representations of my self-image and how it relates to perceptions of gender. Creating art acts as a cathartic release for feelings of dsyphoria and self-loathing, allowing me to appreciate myself as I am and the process of creating art itself.
When creating my works, I tend to gravitate toward materials that can be molded by my own hands; the tactile experience of shaping malleable materials was what first drew me to sculpture. I prefer the softness and more personal touch afforded by oil and polymer based clays, which allow me to shape my forms without the roughness of more industrial tools.
