Classes
are taught begining with the basic proportions, applying visual anatomy, and then moving on to personal style. Figurative sculpture classes are tailored to the individual's goals and abilities. Realism is the foundation from which a student can deviate. Every style is supported in the classroom.


Philosophy:
“The human body is already a work of art . I then consider the essence and energy of the model and create changes to suit my own preference and vision. Each figure, regardless of body type, is sensual, grounded and has volume. I want the viewer to contemplate shape, movement, and mood.”
