Artist Statement

I grew up eating clay and plaster. These materials were my favorite tool to create anything and everything freely. In college I discovered printmaking and ate up all the technique I could. Having digested both mediums, they are now vital tools for expression. With prints and sculptures I am interested in visual narratives that can be found in a face, a chair, or a tree. Growth and aging are intricate factors for both animate and inanimate objects; they share their joys, pains, and experiences on their surface if you look closely. I explore these stories with my ink and clay.
