"The Where and The How Left you and..."
Sculpture, Mixed Media




I was raised in a DIY family, in which I was steeped in the tradition of making something your own, by making it yourself. This included Christmas ornaments, Barbie doll clothes, candles, food from scratch and all manner of Holiday cards, just to mention a few items. The outcome of this, was finding myself an artist as an adult, as my needs for hand made objects greatly expanded and the desire to express myself began to burn within. I didn't buy what I needed, I made it, having faith from my childhood of the miracles a hand can fashion. The apex of my back ground has been the creation of my home, which is an immersive, intricate, inhabitable art installation. I became an artist organically, as I lived my life. When I work, I do not seek beauty, rather, I put colors and shapes together that are jarring and do not match. From this chaos, in the end, a harmony is revealed and rises to the surface. I see this as a metaphor for life, if we choose it. A text always accompanies each artwork and it is either separate, or it is written on the piece itself. It may take the form of lists, prose, or a poem. My work is about our universal state of imperfection and how it binds us together, told through the poetry of bold patterns and vibrant colors. It is about relationships and the fragility of our connections to each other, freely and intimately taking the form of sculptural objects, furniture, collage, installations, poetry and prose.
