Portrait Sculpture

I enjoy sculpture because it engages the entire body in the process of creating form in clay. Even as a toddler, I would play in the mud and make things.  My mother put a stop to my playing in the dirt when I developed worms….  Some things never change, except now I use a cleaner dirt and wash my hands after “playing”.

I find sculpture fascinating because it is 3 dimensional, whereas painting is one dimensional and an artist uses “tricks” of shadow, color and varying edges to create the illusion of three dimensional form.

Over the last 3 years I have been perfecting my speed and honing my sighting skills in portrait sculpture by utilizing live models at my studio every week.  This keeps me evolving and growing in my skills.  Learning is the cornerstone to my creativity. Below are examples of my portrait sculptures.
