Artist Statement

At the center of my process is sensuality. The interaction of touch and material formalizing into shape and object. There is a conversation between influence and material being carried out in the studio. I see and react to the visual stimulus of the organic world and the curiosities of the human condition to collect and consume. As a maker I wish to collect items and experiences from my interactions with form and color. As an artist I attempt to create connections and grouping that combine my labor and visual understanding of color, form and balance. Ultimately I play with material, attempting to recreate my surrounding through a language of material and hand. It is through this language I try to position the viewer to see my perspective towards the objects that surround me and influence my processes.
