Mining many years of personal experience creating utilitarian and artistic objects, my creative practice is a convergence of diverse influences, negotiating a spectrum of curiosities, experiences, and knowledge. My aim is to develop work worthy of exploration and consideration: familiar yet distant, crafted yet curious, expressive yet grounded. If I am successful, the viewer is presented with work that elicits a pause, inciting reflection and a moment of looking beyond a passing gaze. Though the objects I create exist in the public realm as points of exchange, my work, the creative endeavor, lies in the making, the act and art of transforming materials into form and meaning. My exhibited work is a residue of process, a brief incarnation that becomes the seed for subsequent renderings.
