Artist Statement

I create sculpture about transformation. These figures and objects reveal something hidden about our character or primal nature.

Blending the human form with animals and elements from nature, I create hybrids inspired by mythology and contemporary imagery, making uncanny objects. Using ceramics and mixed-media, I often cut into the clay to create tunnels and windows that reveal secrets, mysterious depths, and attract as well as repulse.

What appeals to me about the quality of clay is its ability to morph and allude simultaneously to growth and decay.
