Artist Statement

"I consider the relationship between my vessels and the user, seeking to nourish and give joy. My ideas arise from the seemingly ordinary: the soft texture and color of a plant, the patterns on rocks, the thoughtful design and comfort of a chair. Exploring forms that leave direct evidence of their construction and often reference textures found in nature. The applied designs provide opportunity for playful response and enhance the conversation between the natural and structured elements.”
