My sculptural work is influenced by an obsession since childhood of fantastical stories in fairy tales, mythology and folklore. Aesthetically, I am also drawn to anything vintage, especially old toys, dolls and buttons. Taking bits from stories I read, hear or remember and infusing my own experiences, thoughts and observations creates something completely new with roots rich in ancestral reflection and common human encounters.
In addition to employing my first love of sculptural ceramics, I have also recently discovered the joy and freedom of working with multiple mediums such as wood, paint, metal, wire, paper, fabric and found objects. Initial thoughts and sketches are always a starting point, but method and material have begun to actually inform where a piece will eventually end up conceptually. All my ceramic work is hand-built and kiln fired with various stains and glazes as well as some post-fire treatments.
