WHY DO YOU DO THE WORK YOU DO?
I love doing it. When I begin creating a concept for public artwork, it is an evolutionary process. The request for proposal generally states the mission of the project and what hopes to be achieved with the public art piece. The journey begins as an artist, the moment I attempt to translate the project concept into a vision that can be realized into sculptural form. When the form is received and understood, then the process is successful and extremely rewarding for everyone involved along the way, and for years to come when one engages with the work of art.
WHERE DO YOU HAVE OTHER WORKS?
US, The Netherlands, Dubai, China.
HOW DO YOU FINANCE THE WORK THAT YOU DO?
Teaching and private sells.
