I paint abstract mixed media works and create sculpture.
My studio practice is a physical thinking process.
The quality of memory, and the nature of reality, things lost and found along the way, who I am, things I want to remember; all these ideas play out in my work.
The rhythm and repetition employed in working with clay, or pigment and layers of wax is conducive to a meditative practice.
I see beauty in battered surfaces, and the humanity of unintentional marks. I am continually striving for an experience that revolves around some sort of disclosure or uncovering.
My creative process is a way of staying present and gaining acceptance of things that I do not fully understand.
Trusting materiality to guide the work, adding and removing layers,
Seeking to unearth the final piece.
Where there is restraint, and honesty, I feel I am successful.
