Art is a constant learning process. It means continually exploring concepts, thoughts, ideas, materials, and process. It means taking little bits of ourselves and manipulating them as we attempt to discover new ways to explain ourselves to each other. In my artwork, I use process and material combinations to build things that examine the relationships between forms, and trace connections between disparate times and spaces. I believe simple materials can explore complex narratives and tell stories about the maker as well as the viewer. To this end, I investigate what certain materials have to say in both native and unexpected incarnations, as well as what any one substance might be capable of becoming.
