Teaching Philosophy

“Sculptural work is metaphoric. It wraps science, emotion and technique into a tangible image that speaks with a loud voice to its viewer. To achieve such a strong form of expression one must be open to experimentation, failure and change. Its a journey of self discovery. Just as a child grows to adulthood so too must we grow from a point of unknowing.”
