Myth is my vehicle for spirituality. My own process is very similar to the myths I draw from: I start with a sort of vague idea of where I want to take things, but as the work and the series progress, the directions and destination become clearer. This is one of the reasons why I like the process so much. The process of making sculpture is a spiritual practice for me. The idea of myth is a narrative form. I believe we all have some type of myth running through our veins. Myths are stories about people and myths help us see ourselves within journeys, within narratives and going through things that so many others have gone through before us. By giving us a way to guide ourselves, myths strengthen us and help us find direction. Myths help us find spiritual footing and make the point that, because of culture, we are never truly alone.
