Shaped by a desire to observe how materials interact, my work is a question: What is going on here? Balancing experimentation with skilled craft I create sculptures and installations that challenge expectations of function and notions of stability. 

 

Many sculptures begin as experiments with the materials at hand. Playing and taking risks, I wonder, "What happens if I do this?” The work created becomes the answer. Then I curate the results of these experiments into sculptures. Arranged, assembled and stacked the work is held together by the weight of one object supporting another. I aim for a kind of tenuous stability that engages body awareness and incites curiosity and a desire to investigate the nuances of color, texture and material.
