My work is loosely based on the figure, sometimes morphing into quirky and other worldly beings. The figures I create, some creepy and dark are not to be found on the street but rather in one’s imagination or dreams creating an alternate universe. My ceramic figures inhabit boats, circular and square stands, clay or wooden wagons with wheels, figures sitting on animals or chairs and recently figures appear in portraits.

Although my figures are pared-down minimalist in outside appearance, I mean for them to have complicated and subtle inner lives. For me, they carry the heavy weight of emotional fragility.

Wondering how to live in the world with others … this is my way of speaking through my art, my way of being in the world.
