Artist bio: My work is a reflection of my own personal experiences, thoughts, and emotional response to circumstances that are out of my control. I am especially fascinated with urban and environmental textures, and objects that, either due to our busyness or disregard, typically go unnoticed. I capture these abundantly common textures and hand build objects in stoneware clay and use them to create both framed and unframed wall instillation pieces. I use slips, stains and glazes to highlight the highly textured pieces which are fired multiple times. I incorporate repetition, size, depth, light, shadows and color to create work for the wall that blurs the lines between 2-D and 3-D.
