Artist Statement:
I am interested in how emotions can form neurological networks within the body. The flesh and bone-like qualities of the wax and sculptural resin I use are a way of integrating vulnerability with science. I feel that I am creating biologically inspired self-portraits and internal landscapes. Topographical maps, where conscious morphs with subconscious, giving form to unremembered memories.
