Statement

         Every person has a vessel for expression, and my artwork, more specifically my low fire ceramic work is mine. Every piece has its own individuality, and each narrative expresses a different aspect of my own persona. Generally I build a female form adjacent to some sort of creature. From a Giraffe with two girls climbing up its spine to an exotic bird peering into a nest with eggs hatching human forms. I love animals and find them very relatable to human nature, even though humans have driven so many into extinction, and or put them in danger of it.  The reason I don’t create fictional creatures is because I want the fantasies I have created to be tangible. I have found that although I create creatures the only creature I am truly portraying is myself. The people I create tend to be self-portraits, either relating to my childhood fantasies or the issues I deal with through the process of growing up. Not just growing in age but in my art, my knowledge, my experience, and my dreams. I imagine something up and if it appeals to my artistic instinct I then create it in a three dimensional form using low fire ceramics. It is a special thing to be able to take your dreams and mold them into our reality where other people can experience them as well
