Working with clay both soothes and energizes me. I thrive on trial and error as much as on the end result - when a completed sculpture tells a story and comes to life.
My process involves the repetitive use of molds derived from custom models to produce the building blocks of my sculptures. This repetition provides consistent parameters while creating opportunities for me to alter and reinterpret form in the final work - from model to mold to mutation.
I challenge myself to look beyond the surface of forms and to transform them through association with an unfamiliar, yet instinctively recognizable context. My sculptures intend to be tangible, while allowing the viewer to create their own storyline.
