For as long as I can remember, I have been making. I cannot imagine a life where I do not have a creative outlet. Sharing the deepest part of me allows me to connect with the world, with the people I love, with myself. In my view, being an artist is about being open, it's about reflecting what one sees. It's also about asking questions and not necessarily having the answers. I have a lot of questions... some are about society, others are about communication, but almost all are about what it means to be human.
I'm not sure if I choose clay or it chooses me. It has a hold on me. I love it for its versatility, its sensuousness, its animate potential. When I'm in the studio, I feel alive and excited. I am also deeply connected to the present, to here, to now. I think that touch has a lot to do with this. And it is through touch that I am looking to connect with you.
My current tableware collections are about contrast, about a juxtaposition between the organic and the inanimate. They are also about the generosity of the human spirit and the beauty of nature. They are about time, about pause, about intimacy.
