Artist Statement

Insatiable curiosity pushes me forward. Exploring the space between order and chaos, I get to the place freedom and creativity hang out. Pushing materials, techniques, and equipment pushes my own self-imposed limits. Flexible materials become supporting structure. Everything becomes metaphor as I combine history and myth with milk and wine bottles, tea bags, shadows, tomato cages, fishing lures and children’s toys. When juxtaposing unrelated materials, I can turn gentle images into menacing forms and wrap menace in softness.
