My work reflects my impressions and memories, then develop form to contain and explore those thoughts. My aim is to understand these impressions and to develop a precise and personally relevant visual vocabulary for my ceramic work.
Alphabetic structures, anatomical shapes and nature inspire the surface of my mostly abstract images. Dance and language studies inform the physical structures and compositions of my shapes. I believe that our first visual expressions were representations of our bodies, in particular, of our relationship with the earth and sky.
I find deep meaning in visually contemplating these ancient shapes which have changed over time. I want my life work to be inside of these ideas, to be true to them and to learn how to share them with others.
