I have always loved art. One of my earliest memories is my dad and I walking to a small neighborhood diner when I was 4 or 5 years old and I saw the guy behind the counter show me how he could turn red and white into pink, and I was hooked from then on. It didn’t matter to me that he was merely stirring ketchup and mayonnaise together, I was paying attention to the colors. I took my first art class when I was 5 and thought I was making masterpieces, and was taught an early understanding of the basics of perspective, color, and composition.
My art continued through college where it was my major. What I began to do then was start to use a variety of mediums which triggered a love for finding a way to combine them. I had experience with sculpture from ceramics, computer images from photography, acrylic and watercolor from painting, and pencils from drawing.
During that time I was also using clay to minimalize the form of a cat and make sculptures from slabs of clay. After college the construction of minimalized cat forms progressed to the forms of rabbits. The use of shapes that are more geometric rather than the true form achieved in realism is really appealing to me. The rabbit sculptures, especially the faces, make use of the minimalist theory of absence equaling presence.
