I am interested in the vulnerability of humans and other beings, and in the humor and pathos that arise from this vulnerability. I see humor and pathos not as opposites, but as complimentary modes of exploring this theme. I aspire to make pieces that are both expressive and surprising.
I work with ash clay, acrylics, and found objects (particularly discarded shoes) to make my sculpture. I create the paintings in acrylic, generating the images from surrealist techniques such as collage and blind contour. The sculpture and the paintings both involve a lot of sanding and layering of paint.
