I've had over a dozen models come in and pose fro me live for these new Cirque pieces. Cirque is a world-wide phenomenon and they are just incredible athletes. I've been to all the performances and am really fascinated by all of their productions.
I create for artistic intent only and do everything from life.
The greatest success is creating whatever you want without conditions. I don't do commissions unless I really want to, because it's like having a job.
At any one time, I'll have 30 to 40 pieces going on in the studio, so this is not economically driven at all.
I cannot tell you how many people, powerful people, come to my studio and they are in tears they are so moved by what they see.
