I create and collect objects: the collecting influences the making, and the making influences the collecting. My interests in landscape, identity of place, discarded objects, and the emotional currency of materials have informed my process and my work. Endeavoring to grapple with the environment in ways that collapse and mesh boundaries of self/other, I want to challenge the viewer to look a little closer, to notice our complicit shuffling of things from one place to the next, and to value the labor of those who maintain objects and places.

My projects have included work in ceramic sculpture, painting, installation, printmaking, photography, digital composition, words, sound, wearable and functional ceramics, and independent curation.

My curatorial work has focused on expanding and opening these narratives for other voices and vantage points, to bring attention to the work of other artists, and facilitate a sense of shared community on this planet.
