Florence strives to capture the form, the texture, the character, and, above all, the spirit of the animal in my sculptures. At the same time, her animal subjects often show human emotions and tell stories. The line between animal and human are increasingly blurred to provide opportunities to explore and reflect on the human condition. The process of creating is very organic and the element of chance are allowed to influence the posture and the attitude of the finished sculpture. Beneath the gentle and beguiling exterior, she hopes that something deeper and knowing is captured in the animal’s gesture and expression.
