I create sculptures for indoor and outdoor spaces. I enjoy working with predominantly natural materials, weaving and making using willow, wire, thread, paper, and ceramic. The work evolves, coming from an imaginary place to grow into dysfunctional vessels, encompassing space, winding around themselves. Creating forms with a life of their own. I like to respond in a way that creates something from nothing, transforming the discarded, unnoticed, or unseen into something large and present. Using my hands, repetitive movements, and physical hard work are all key elements in my making process. When making larger scale work I want the viewer to respond directly, they can climb into the work, or really want to- but can’t. Natural materials and environmental concerns are key elements in my work; I try to be as ‘light touch’ as possible. I enjoy making work that controls the way the viewer sees and responds to the space.
