Conflict, illness and loss are the common denominators and, later, the catalysts that prompted an urgent pursuit of understanding and relief through creation. The figures I form with my hands see, feel and embody my pain. My figurative works become friends as I create people that I have imagined and would like to get to know. Balancing the grotesque with occasional humor, I attempt to capture the dichotomy that life can bring as I experience joy with the realization of my own mortality.
