I combine sculpture, printed image, and text in an attempt to resuscitate the ache and poignancy of ordinary moments felt firsthand inside the studio or out in the world. I'm particularly interested in the relationship we have with the objects around us - the way we grow attached to them, the way we wrestle with them, and the vulnerabilities that are revealed in the process.

 

I like to use a variety of processes to transfigure and translate things once felt into a new experience for the audience. I'm drawn to materials that act as stand-ins for the heft and pliancy of flesh and the ballast of body weight, so the body is felt rather than seen. In the end, what results is a family of objects that feel improvisational and playful in their construction, made with a light, yet deliberate, hand.
