About the Artist
They all told me I'd grow out of it, but for me horses are an enduring inspiration.
My creative expression has always been driven by a deep passion for horses, and yet it took many years for me to realize that making art was an important aspect of my happiness.
My education in art history gave me a strong theoretical and conceptual foundation, but my technique is almost entirely self-taught. It took me many years to develop a consistent practice.
I chose to specialize in sculpture in part because I am a terrible painter (it was my worst mark in undergrad actually), but also because building three-dimensional works requires not only aesthetic considerations, but structural problem solving as well. Perhaps I am a bit of an engineer.
I currently work with air dry clay, ceramic, and paper, often mixing media to take advantage of each medium's strengths. By consistently pushing the boundaries of materials, I create richly layered sculptures that can both challenge and delight the viewer.
