My work is a reflection of nature, science, and a love of natural history. Most of the subjects for my sculptures come from my observations in nature. My process involves researching the form, history, and evolution of each subject as well as its folklore and myth in order to blend together the two concepts. My earliest works as an artist was as an illustrator and my sculptures work as a illustrative representation of form and movement. In creating the sculpture, the challenge then becomes translating the illustration into a three dimensional object that still maintains a sense of weightless fluidity within a static form.
