My art is the resinous remains of fallen and decayed pine trees that have been transformed into unique sculptures. These partially buried and decaying fragments of pine trees are carefully chosen and examined to determine their suitability for sculpture.

 

Artist Statement:

My art is the resinous remains of fallen and decayed pine trees that have been transformed into unique sculptures. These partially buried and decaying fragments of pine trees are carefully chosen and examined to determine their suitability for sculpture. Once selected, the process of turning them into unique pieces of art is meticulous and challenging, requiring multiple steps involving hand carving tools, steel wool and several coats of wax to reveal their natural beauty.  Bringing these pine resin fragments to life is like a spiritual awakening that's been gifted to me by Mother Nature.
