About

 

In my work I seek to understand emotion.  Working instinctually, I recreate the tangible and intangible details from my past; my grandmother’s rosary, a line in a song.  As these fragments come together into one composition, I remember the story and emotion in a new way.  Though often melancholic, I have fondness for these memories and emotions and with that a desire to keep them.  In these compositions they no longer feel heavy, but appear beautiful and adorning.

Within the studio, I have spent the past year exploring my creative process and what drives me to create. Repetitive exercises that limit time, technique, and materials have generated recurrence of details and influence which, in turn, have brought clarity and direction to my work.  I have found new inspiration in my roots and a unique approach to embracing color, found objects, and narrative.
