Artist Statement

 I’m intrigued by geometry that has gone astray. I create disorder out of underlying order.

I find peace in proportion, striving for balance, never symmetry.

I am a tactile person. I create texture that you can feel, as well as visual texture which you can see. 

I embrace the beauty of the discarded and the ordinary things that go unnoticed. I call this Found Beauty.

I spent much of my life on the periphery of art, facilitating its creation and consumption, never believing I could make my own art or share my own voice. But then my life took a series of twists and turns. And over time, I came to accept that I have no real control over my path. This realization, although painful at times, freed me to commit to creating my own work and to grow as an individual. This acceptance has allowed me to make mistakes and to embrace chance. It’s freed me to be imperfect and to trust my instincts.

My work always begins with an intention, but I allow the process and material to inform the outcome. This letting go adds to the beauty, texture, and feeling of movement in my work.

By altering geometry, creating texture, and embracing the beauty of the discarded I transform my materials. The idea that transformation is possible underpins all of my work.
