My work is informed by why personal interests, experiences, and relationships are not held in the same regard as one's career. I am concerned with the mental, cultural, and environmental effects of a “live-to-work” society. I have come to believe the pressures of capitalism negatively shape choices and behaviors. My work addresses these issues through droll humor, attention to craft, and a wide range of materials.
I studied painting in graduate school, but other aspects of my practice: woodworking, textiles, animation, sculpture, etc, have been self-taught. Continuing to explore, improve, and learn techniques makes my studio practice exciting and rewarding.
