I don’t know if there is a definite ideal I try to get across in my work. It is more a personal battle between my love of classical realism and cubist abstraction. I am also torn between human and animal forms. Every piece you see is taken to the point where I just won’t go any farther. As you can see I usually stop far short of true realism. I like to leave evidence of the tools in my sculpture as a history of the process. My work is constantly changing, evolving because I amalways learning.
