My sculpture begins with thoughts regarding universal interactions, the decision making process, and the weight of two disparate fields, directions, or paths. Drawing upon my readings of literature, biblical writings, epic tales, and ancient myths about heroes facing critical choices, I create writings and drawings about the moment of decision. Bringing the fluidity and freedom of the pencil and color drawings to the steel, I cut individual shapes and begin to manipulate the composition. I carry the experience and knowledge of formal artistic concerns and massage space with shape. Once the idea is realized in the representation of a specific hero’s choice, it broadens and becomes universal about making critical, life-changing decisions.
