I am a wildlife artist. I strongly believe in the transmission of energy between the artist, which becomes a channel for the universal energy and its creations. My animals are infused with such anergy to the point that they end up having their own soul. Reiki plays an important role in my art; the use of the universal energy and the deep connection I created with Mother Nature combined with the four elements brings life and balance to my artwork. The sculpting process itself involves the four elements of creation; the earth (clay), the water (contained in the clay), the wind (that dries my sculpture), and the fire to end the process. I look at the way I sculpt as a very complete journey of creation with the final goal of helping nature and wildlife thrive.
