ARTIST STATEMENT: I am interested in layers, internal structure, and the formation of objects. I have always been drawn to the composition of matter in our world. Geometry is one of the foundations of the cohesion common to all form. At a very basic level all things are molecules bonded together at angles. I am fascinated with the ways in which all things share basic foundational elements with infinite capacities.

The way the mind reads objects give insight into the way I create sculpture.  I compose forms and materials together in order to reference the way that structure can be read throughout the tiers of formation of matter e.g., molecular bonding. Objects occupy the same space as we do and we must both adhere to the same physical properties of the fabric of the universe.  Human beings have a close relationship to matter and I believe that at some level we are able to read and see objects for their physical reality and are able to see the world we live in through them.  I'm interested in creating things that compel the viewer to look a little more closely at our reality and the way we perceive it.
