My ultimate goal as an artist is to make my works come alive and breathe such vividness into them that they appear to be living organisms. I am inspired by the natural environments in which I have lived; my native, Midwestern prairie and the seacoast of southern California.
Even though each piece is carefully made by hand, I want to encourage the viewer to have a shared interactive physical engagement with the objects. My work is unabashedly about pleasure through all the senses, especially visual, tactile, and through a collaborative relationship with a sound designer, auditory. These interactive and multi-sensory experiences have culminated into large-scale installations that invite the audience to look, touch, listen, and feel.
