Children simply notice what they notice.
In that same manner, I see a lot of things, but I only notice a few; some being the pink that I grew up loving, a chubby kid eating candy, flowers, and whimsy. It is this type of focused and selective awareness that directs my practice. A child’s reality is embellished by imagination and is void of societal boundaries and judgment, which enables the tremendous range of imagery and activity to emerge from their world. I try to capture these moments of innocent indulgences when kids are engrossed in play or within their own thoughts. My sculptures are reminders of the brief, idealized time when we all were carefree and innocent; yet also evoke a sense of current realism. They serve as devices that allow the viewer to enter and re-enter this place of pure joy, bringing the world of pure imagination to the reality of adulthood.
