Statement

I make art as a way to speak to the story of our times, to reconsider and reframe our cultural landscape. My work explores issues of gender and race, cultural inheritance and the natural world through the exploration of artifacts and cultural remnants. I am a sculptor and installation artist working on an archaeological dig of contemporary society, asking questions about life through a twist of materials and imagery.

I am interested in the intersection of nature and the human made, nature and the sociopolitical, and investigate through a twist of materials, forms, and language. The unexpected in art challenges our fundamental way of looking. Abstractions from our lives are reworked navigating scale or unusual material that reflect and build on the intention of the work. The layering of text and sound has organically evolved from my use of story as inspiration.
