My work is motivated by the need for self-examination. It is a tool I use to visually express the encounters I have with people and the events that occur around me.

I draw my references from organisms found in nature. I am attracted by their fragility as well as their strength. My preferred medium is porcelain. I love the smoothness of porcelain and how glaze colors respond to it. Porcelain takes on any texture that is applied to it, giving me the freedom to better recreate the natural world.

My work reflects my own life experiences and my development as a human being. In the process of finding ways to articulate my inner thoughts, I learn the truth about myself.
