"Where the Spirit doesn't work with the hand there is no art" Leonardo Da Vinci
Skill and the study of my medium is extremely important to me although, it only takes me so far. My best pieces are made when I have let go of all that I know and the curiosity of how a form can take place moves in to create something from within me. I often feel as if I am at the beginning again unravelling the mystery of the next sculpture.
I started creating better work when I gave myself permission to make mistakes. This freed me up to explore and let go further into what I really wanted to say in form.
