All of my work is focused on change. I am exploring how layering and slowly constructing/deconstructing artwork bit by bit echoes the way life works - moving forward, digging deeper, making mistakes, learning, and growing. A key aspect of my work is grappling with the uncertainty (and resulting fear) that is inherently part of being alive. There is no fast track. I am not seeking smooth, pristine surfaces because the exterior of each piece represents the character and life of the work encased within; the visible layer should hint at the twists and turns of a process rich in blunders, second guesses, happy accidents, and courageous leaps of faith. While the end results of my process may not always represent visible beauty in a traditional way, my work seeks to encourage a deeper, transformative journey undergirded by compassion and guided by a seeking heart open to possibility.
