My subject matter is nature, whether it is the bird in flight, the landscape over which it soars, or a human watching its flight. My style is a mix of representational and stylization. For each project, I explore different media to find which will convey my message best. The materiality of clay impacts the viewer differently from the illusion of digital media.
