Statement

I lose things.
I move a lot.
I only own items that I could potentially have for a lifetime.
I like making friends and keeping them
I want to make people laugh.
I think art is for everyone.

My artwork is playful, emotional interventions in everyday environments; pseudo –purposeful yet soulful and generous, my artist books and sculptures incorporate textiles, ceramics, and print making and through the use of bogus instructions and surprising structural and innovative riffs on expectations of each object's function. My installations provide a setting for community and interaction, awkwardness or repetition and the focus on overlooked activities and discarded precious objects of routine.
