In my practice I investigate relationships between materiality, material types and the built environment. I use form, material experimentations, and explorations of process as a means to examine the capacity of objects to evoke meaning beyond their physical characteristics. This body of work ranges from literal representations to abstractions, from cityscapes to individual units, and physical objects that speak of home.
Diverse materials allow me to make wearable objects on an intimate scale, while referencing much larger spaces. In this way, my work provides both wearer and viewer a unique lens through which to view and appreciate the beauty that can be found in built forms.
