Statement

Art making, for me, is a force for developing connections: connections between the past and present, between opposing forces of nature, between the intellect and subconscious, and between me and my artistic materials. I am drawn to architectural and natural forms. In recent sculpture, I have stripped away much of the overt symbolism to work mainly with the forms. In my newest work, I revisit walls which break down over time and expose contents previously hidden.

Nature has always been the center of my being. Working with clay, beeswax and found materials connects me to my early roots of growing up on a Minnesota farm. Cracks, fissures, scars and pools of glaze are all part of my personal artistic vocabulary. The colors I use come primarily from rocks, leaves, and other bits of nature I've collected and studied since childhood. I use layers and layers of color and fill the cracks with dark tones for a sense of history. I intend for each work to expose the evidence of its own past, much as a person reveals an accumulation of his or her experiences.
