My artistic journey embraces change, growth, discovery, and the inherent dichotomous nature of life that continually alternates between chaos and order, disruptions and harmony, adversity and fortune. 


It is the constant internal adjustment to the changes going on in and around me that I find compelling. To make sense of it, I seek to find balance, harmony, and rhythm in my work.


As I work, I let my memories, experiences, emotions, and materials guide me. The edges, layers, transitions, tensions, and movement converge and represent the ongoing and continuous metamorphosis.


In my sculptural work, I create multiple forms, abstracting visual references from the human form, nature, and my experiences. I arrange and rearrange the forms until they “fit” together. Through this back-and-forth dialog to find what “feels” right, the work transforms into something new. It is important to me that as you move around each piece, it evolves, conjuring new perspectives, emotions, and images.


I have become obsessed with the cracks in the pavement and sidewalk that inspire my drawings. I am fascinated by what lies beneath the surface as “it” seemingly tries to break through its shell to become something other.
