About the Striving Series
The Striving Series is composed of sculptures
that either are inspiring (by trying to motivate you
onward) or strong (conveying an attitude of not
backing down). These sculptures are characterized by
their appearance of an unyielding/unmoving stance or
assertive direction-orientated stance. These
sculptures use the reality of the hardness of stone
to reinforce their message.
About the Music Series
Music is an ephemeral medium. It exists as a
two-dimensional entity on a sheet of paper called a
score. It exists as a momentary auditory experience
in a performance. The Music Series is my way of
making a two-dimensional/momentary experience a
tangible three-dimensional solid. These gentle
sculptures sway (metaphorically because of their
design) to a music they either hear or are
Exuberant Series, as the name implies, is about
happiness. These sculptures, when they were being
carved and ever after, always lighten my heart. They
are always cheerful or playful.
