I realize my work in many different mediums, such as bronze, clay, plaster, wood, concrete or whatever I find is best a particular project.
I believe that limiting mysef to a single medium is restrictive to the process.
To me, sculpting is drawing in three dimensional space so I must be flexible to the fluctuations in my creative process. This process most often is born with the manifestation of an idea or image in my mind of some sort which then becomes the starting point for a sculpture.
As the idea and form becomes more definable, it starts to take on a meaning to me and allows me to explore what theme or image has been presented. This procedure is what I go though with each sculpture I create. What they have in common is the process.
