My thinking once privileged the logical path as my architecture training had taught me to do, has grown to include equally the emotional influences of my lived experience. The unique contributions of each of my parents have come to bear on this change in thinking and in my development as a sculptor. My mother was a maker of textiles. Within her works, she clearly communicated a message of appreciation to the wearer, as represented in the multitude of carefully crafted stitches. My father is an architect. In his drawings of buildings, I see order, form, and the expression of space clearly articulated. Together, my parents imparted their lessons to me during my formative years. These influences carried me forward, yet I always viewed them distinct from one another. The self-reflective experience of graduate school revealed a relationship between these different ways of making that I had not initially realized. This has had a direct impact on the type of work I produced in which I tried to expand these boundaries.
This thesis speaks to my journey from being an architect to becoming a sculptor.
