Artist Statement

In my work, I am intrigued by human relationship between mind and body, as well as body to nature.  I examine and hand sculpt biological growths found in nature, such as moths, barnacles, or flowers.  Multiple sculpted pieces are re-imagined as a whole, and assembled as clusters, blossoming or decomposing. Our connecting to the natural world compels one to see the world in relation to self and understanding of human nature.  I embrace new methods with each new artwork, intrigued by the versatility and endless possibilities of clay and resolving unexpected challenges with each hand made sculpture.
