Artist Statement & Biography
I look at my pieces as individual time capsules: vessels containing meaning and memories. Nostalgia, place, interaction, and ritual are all facets I incorporate within the work. Each sculpture is carefully planned but I allow the material to direct me while I am working . I make objects that to me are the “everyday extraordinary.” These are moments with objects we tend to overlook which shape us and make us, moments I am passionate about making small-scale monuments for.
