Lives in


ceramics, mixed-media, installation, sculpture


My approach to art making is to enliven taken-for-granted environments, often by marking out overlooked yet interesting things by reframing and re-contextualizing them. I try to do this subtly, where the room or the field remain a room or a field, but suggest other times, places or occurrences. My emphasis is on creating visual and conceptual delight, where cracks may become rivers, or mulch transforms into an ocean wave. I enjoy using materials and objects in ways that challenge how they are normally used or seen, that bring different associations and perspectives together in unusual ways.

Although I am a confirmed object maker, I have been influenced by the Light & Space movement that did away with the object, so I often employ material to evoke the immaterial or the ephemeral. The interface between object making and Light and Space art is architecture, so references to architecture often appear in my work.
