Artist Statement

My recent work consists of larger-than-life ceramic busts; satirically depicting the general nature and eccentricities of my subjects. Humor plays an integral part in the physiological makeup of each character. The use of bold, vivid color and the exaggerated gestures also add a dimension in creating the personality and mood of the busts/characters.
