I was born with clay in my hands. Sculpting was innate to me. From an early age, visualizing and shaping the world was my happy place—a creative outlet and a necessity. Through my experiences at art school and my ongoing search for meaning, I've come to believe that humor and whimsy are important art forms in their own right. These bears are more than just sculptures—they are an escape from the seriousness of modern life. My hope is that through them, people will find a return to playfulness, innocence, and simplicity.
