Our global community relies on the vastness of our differences and coincidence of our sameness. My work acts as a conduit of revelation between the Self and the Stranger, always finding one within the other. Perpetually seeking the ideal utopia of human interaction and acceptance, my practice aims to remove our routine blindness by inserting opportunities for connectivity. Shared human experience often brings the work back to childhood, a naïve existence prior to the divisions of adult ideologies and social boundaries. Moments of common vulnerabilities and levities are intertwined in a dark comedy that questions habitual perception. The familiar and the strange are always cast in a mischievous dance of entanglement in my work. A constant duality emanates between the chance for the change and the preservation of common practices. My work often employs iconic imagery and found objects as a point of common human connection. Mundane materials are repurposed to suggest the presence of opportunity in everyday life. Diverse textures, colors, and patterns exude a playful energy that offers both hope and warning. Moving fluidly between sculpture, drawing, and installation, my practice remains in a constant state of flux as a mirror of our global community.
