Imp Man

Imp Man, clay, 48" x 20" x 20"

My background is conventionally grounded in drawing and painting; however, my work is often described as quirky or surprising. I make sculptural work that blends both animal and human forms. My sculptures have evolved into three-dimensional canvases incorporating unconventional materials.

The work centers around lo-fired, brightly colored ceramic pieces. Along the way I may use animal remains such as hair, bone or horn, found objects such as glass, beads, jewelry, and taxidermy eyes, or building materials such as chicken wire, re-bar, fiberglass, feram insulation and concrete. The juxtaposition of these materials helps accentuate the blurring of human and animal forms while exploring the emotional state.
