ARTIST STATEMENT:

I am addicted to creating wonder.

It’s a moment that I’m after. That feeling when you see something new or different, when you see the way the world works, or how it can work like you've never seen before. Those fleeting brushes with awe spark creativity and encourage discovery. That’s where curiosity lives — experiences that deepen the mystery and open doors to different perspectives. Those are the moments I live to create.

I make sculptures and installations with recycled and unconventional materials that highlight consumption and sustainability. An intentional, whimsical thread runs through my work. It’s important to me to maintain a sense of lightness and surprise while addressing larger issues. Delight is a wonderful promoter of intrigue. I want the double take, the metaphor. I want someone to believe in magic for an instant.

A 70s child and a product of experimental living, for a few formative years we lived off-grid without running water, electricity, or modern conveniences. That unconventional upbringing and the vivid contrast in later years drew my interest to the ways we navigate the world, how little is actually necessary to exist, and an ongoing curiosity about our interactions with technology, the world, and each other.

What do I want to say with my art?

Never lose your sense of wonder. Chase the sublime. Consume less. Look closer. Be curious. Allow yourself to really look at the world and define objects differently. Celebrate awe and seek the magic in everyday things.
