Statement

I am a multi-disciplinary artist that uses symbolism and recognizable forms to convey vulnerability and strength. My studio becomes a laboratory for experimenting with dirt, clay, shells seaweed, found objects, used textiles and repurposed papers, which I then build into pieces or create installations with. I enjoy manipulating any kind of material that speaks to me. The material takes on role of protagonist. Some examples are: paper dresses, shoes made of lavender, dirt or tree bark, hats of algae, ephemeral shell or seaweed installations. I am intrigued by the act of creation as a human necessity and as a means of reconstructing our relationship to Nature. The organic cycles of life, death, growth, and change lend themselves to my interest in repair; everything outside of the manmade world I recycle, reuse, and share. In this manner my work highlights the need for sustainable resources, materials, and systems as well as our return to a positive relationship with the world around us. Making art or tapping into the creative source allows me to find myself but also lose myself.
