Portfolio > Sculpture

I have always played with dolls. Dancers, circus acrobats, woman who use their bodies to express themselves fascinated me. In college, I learned about historical clay female figures and studied ceramics. This figural work is centered on the idea of persona and the stories revealed by the public faces and postures we assume. By creating sculpture in an intimate small scale, I want the viewer to take the time to examine the details. In this work, I have combined elements of both extremes—the figure as icon and the figure as a form of play—in order to communicate this duality between the ways we see ourselves and who we are.
But really, I am still that little girl playing with her dolls, telling their stories.
