I believe we all create our own reality. I am interested in the stories we tell ourselves about who we are. The narrative is constantly changing, and we can decide how to edit the story of our lives. I consider my artwork narrative and autobiographical. I am constantly trying to capture an emotion or a moment, to find a way to reflect on the process of living. Creating figure sculpture gives me a chance to communicate the subtleties of being human.
