Artist Interviews-Where are you going? Where have you been? How did you get there?

About this blog--As a recent graduate and currently in a one-year residency the question of what’s next and how to get there is always on my mind. For this blog I will be interviewing artists who have taken varying paths and pursued different careers in or out of the arts to see what they are doing now and the steps they took to get there. Special Note--I want this to be a way to share how we are all trying to figure out the paths to what’s next and where to go, not answers or things to do, but…See More

What media do you work with?
I work with deconstructed kids meal toys, old food tins, tiny objects with a history...coins, buttons, saint medals, etc. I cast work in bronze, silicone and plastic. I also enjoy the freedom and spontaneity of working in clay.

My work is influenced by a career as a laboratory technician and a wastewater treatment plant operator.

Inspired by beauty and humor found in unexpected places, I share my enthusiastic view of the organisms that live in and around waste.

Food, water and waste are recurring topics in my work.

Food is a topic I often explore. Food is more than fuel. It forms memories and reinforces relationships. It is culture and ritual. At times, it is obsession. Food is a common thread that weaves us together.

Glad you like it here. Your sense of humor is infectious. :-)
