My sculpture is about social situations and everyday routine. I usually take a familiar idea and put it in an awkward or unfamiliar place creating a tension that can be good and/or bad. Sitting close to someone, looking someone in the eye, being low to the ground instead of in a chair, all seem to make most of us uncomfortable. I want to bring this tension out into the open and play with it. I enjoy using my hands to create and build. I love colors and patterns in combination with wood and fabric. Silkscreening, woodblock printing, layering of paint and experimenting with upholstery are all obsessions I explore. With each series that I create, a narrative takes place between the forms, their space and the viewer. I try to create a restful feeling in my work, one that allows us to explore the forms and engage in interesting or maybe awkward conversation.
