The transition from virtual modeling to physical modeling was relatively painless. 2008 was my first time studying sculpture and it was by an amazing man Louis Marinaro. With endless studies on human anatomy and modeling techniques I began my interest in hand made sculpture. Experimenting with the process of Mig-welding I created some work that took advantage of the processes and materials. A few years later I studied at Ewha University in Seoul, South Korea. Taking classes in Korean language, Metal Sculpture, Clay Sculpture, and 3D Animation, I was immersed in an artistic culture other than my own. With Jong-Ku Kim stressing the importance of a balance between western and eastern mentality within the arts, I advanced my knowledge of workflow and the meaning of art. This led to a re-pose of my “Waiting Woman” sculpture that takes in the idea of a Korean woman wanting a conversation yet the culture makes it difficult for her to show.
