My current body of work is an exploration of materials and an expression of relational dynamics. It began with the inspiration of my grandmother and a yearning for her humble perfection and serene order and how I perceived them to be an unattainable reality. It has grown into an investigation of interiors and exteriors-what is visible versus what remains hidden. Surface patterns and intimate details are devices I use to reflect what we choose to reveal or conceal in our relationships. My visual language consists of quilt-inspired patterns and rounded shapes, often imperfect and offset. I combine metal with alternative and repurposed materials to create complex and engaging forms. Working with materials that have an innate history and transforming them into something contemporary motivates me and continues to add new dimensions to my work.
