I do not hold a degree in art. My path was a non-conventional one, with influences firmly rooted in folk culture. I am drawn to the way clay’s immediacy and unpredictability render it fertile ground for endless experimentation. I am driven by an intuitive process, and employ techniques and tools that support this way of working.
Currently, I am reworking select objects that hold symbolic meaning for me. While doing so, I am exploring how I can alter their narrative through scale and placement. I hope to imbue these ordinary objects with glimpses of shared human experiences and emotion.
As a working member of The Ash Street Project, I am able to gain insights from each visiting artist and new group of mentees. My understanding of material and concept is enriched by being part of this experiment.
