My personal art is about transformation, movement and the passage of time, sometimes just a moment, sometimes a number of years. It can be the way light transforms a subject, or the way a man moves his hands while working. Look on as Preston Jackson molds and smooths the clay into his Richard Pryor sculpture. Watch as the dancer spins and turns and right before your eyes changes from a toddler into a young woman. Creating movement in a static setting is a challenge and a mirage, but sometimes I have seen the end results touch a viewer’s heart, bringing tears to their eyes. This is where the magic happens- when something I have created can stir another person’s emotions, that is what keeps me going. I have been creating art for most of my life. I am primarily self taught, but have taken classes and workshops from other artists, including Preston Jackson.
