I’m a figurative artist who draws, paints, and sculpts with clay.

Conceptually, I’m fascinated with mythology and technology. Aesthetically, I can’t get enough of the human form, expressive faces, and patterns. My early work obsessed over archetypes throughout history, religion, and pop culture. Now I look to the future, exploring the ever evolving relationship between humans and technology.

Coming to Our Senses

a woman stands in the window and listens to birdsongs playing from her iPhone
a woman stands in the window, drinking lemon flavor from a can
a woman surrounded by photos of friends and family presses her hand against the window because she is alone

Women wait in their windows, looking out on nothing. Each tries desperately to recreate a specific sensation, something that once was, but now that has vanished in all but a synthesized form.

Glaze is where my love of painting and my passion for clay come together. In these pieces, I explored, with glaze, some patterns that have captivated my attention in the past.
