“At the still point, there the dance is.” -T.S. Eliot

I lived a youth replete with dance. Steps, turns and gestures awoke me to the body's own power for making words, both in movement and in stillness.

My sculptural work is about the female body, though not so much its minutest details as its presence. This presence comes from a delicate balance between motion and rest, communicating a kind of eternal yearning - to be greater, to be elsewhere, to simply be and have that be enough.

If I can get this into my work, and like a good dance do it simply, I am satisfied.
