Research Interests:

I make sculptures, drawings and installation. Borrowing from the language of architecture and design, I reimagine common shapes in various colors, materials, shifts in orientation, and scale. By blending the familiar and the strange with references to utilitarian objects and human gestures, I explore relationships between the physical world, emotion, memory and the body. Sensitivity to materials, mark-making, mass, and weight grounds the work in physical experience, while simultaneously it revels in a lack of fixedness.
