Sculpture begins and ends with an insight. Insight is a moment of illuminated thinking in which beauty, present in ordinary existence, is revealed to the imagination. That beauty, created by our bodies and beings, is what I hope to convey through my sculptures. I try to capture moments of everyday world that are at once transient and transcendent, that may easily go unnoticed but turn out to have universal significance when perceived. We must allow ourselves to feel awe at these insights, sculptor and viewer alike, in order to return to a richer, deeper human experience. After all, art offers us a single most direct form of communication: from one human being to another. It is the highest form of hope.
