Tomi La Pierre

Sculpture is the predominant base of my art . I have training in Forensic Facial Reconstruction and tend to split my art into two areas. One reflects the reality of human existence with appropriate emotions . The second is an abstract world of movement and thought. Both, however, are founded in the human form.
