What is your role in this exhibit? What kind of art do you make or support?
My role is a visual artist…I sculpt inner emotion, conversation and thoughts. I am a sculptor of children.
Of course in the beginning it was work but as the work progresses it begins to have life and feeling of a real little person. When doing the details I actually pull from within, when I interview the person I sculpt or watch them, I observe the mannerism and try to match that with my work. I thoroughly enjoy my work and I’m excited each day I have to privilege to know the person I’m sculpting. My desire is to convey expressions, thoughts and the true inner person of my subject. In doing so I become a better person. I understand children are important and their story is important by placing myself in their world I can feel what they feel and find the emotions of their reality. Clay is play.
Invigorating; it is so interactive and there is so much for everyone to feel part of; be it a painting, music, dance or photos it is an experience only one can have if they come. Honestly, I had no idea how in the world this would come together, it totally blows me away by the reaction of the public and the artists involved.
