artist statement

The art that I create is a physical evidence of connections I find through research, prayer, discussion and observation. I enjoy working within built and natural environments and forming structures through a variety of materials and constructions. Employing process-oriented methods -- such as casting, sewing, folding, and melting -- emphasizes the handmade quality crucial to my works’ visual elements. The tactile nature of completed installations and pieces is very important to me, and I desire it to be taken as an invitation to inspire connections between concepts and the physicality of the artwork. Currently, I am investigating installation ideas based on balance, pattern and coded language.
