I used new techniques for sculpting (with molding in mind), different molding techniques and new material for casting (fast setting).

Albertan sculptor focused on human and animal figures and portraits

"My sculptures are about the spark and spirit of a person or animal, not just their likeness. I want to bring the audience into that moment of hope, love, connection, positive self-image, faith and wonder."
