I think of my hand-built forms as an attempt to find an alternative to conventional portraiture. Everybody is made up of numerous personalities which can be just as illustrative of a individual as one physical appearance. My pieces focus on how a person can be portrayed by inner characters and inner self. This kind of depiction can be rather complex as sometimes it needs a lot of effort and careful observation to see through and between the many different layers of personalities in order to capture the real person as this can be concealed and hidden behind various other characters. In my pieces I aim to show that searching and looking for the real true being.
