I seek to create environments of eccentric juxtapositions that illuminate the vulnerability and impermanence of environment, memory and time. I utilize visual elements such as plants to represent growth, braided hair to symbolize the passage of time, fish, and birds to illustrate flight, migration, and nesting. My studio process is composed of both the curiosity for the medium’s complex chemistry and the clays inherent ability to take any form.
