Sculpture

There is an interesting thought process that occurs as I am sculpting.  Each piece of paper seems to have a place it belongs.  It comes from within, from somewhere…I don’t consciously think about it…it just happens.  The horses dictate colors, feelings and personality.

I sculpt with paper much the same way you sculpt with clay, wax or metal.  I use a variety of papers- soft, recycled, thick, newspaper.  I begin with a single piece of paper, add some, take some away…through creation the horses change and evolve, their personalities grow, their souls come to be.
