2019 Best of Show
My work is a reflection of my own personal experiences, thoughts, and emotional responses to circumstances, typically out of my control. I am especially fascinated with common textures and objects that go unnoticed. A bright red fire hydrant, a muted pink band aid, text on a manhole cover, the soles of our children's shoes, the grungy type on industrial machinery. I capture these abundantly common textures and hand build objects in stoneware clay and use them to create both framed and unframed wall instillation pieces.
