The Artists

Since the beginning of time, people have made small representations of the human figure and imbued them with meaning.

My little figures have been invested with intent. I seek to speak to the imagination. To open the mind, and enter into a game of make-believe, traveling back to childhood again, where all things are possible.

My figures are a direct sculpt, clay over a wire armature. The face is painted, the wire padded and the body dressed. I choose antique fabrics and trims, the latest are 1800 French brocades. Along the way each tiny figure takes a journey from my dreams to reality.

Drawing takes me on a quiet journey of imagination. After 25 years of sculpting my mind is full of images waiting to find their stories.
