As a professional artist my work focuses on personal struggles and, more recently, the subtle distinctions between partnership and dependence. My earlier work was inspired mostly by natural forms but I’m starting to explore abstraction of the human figure as a means of expression. In my studio practice I investigate the effect of building forms from smaller components using techniques like, welding, fiber art, collage, and found object.
In my work these connections often translate to a compilation of lines and I use these lines to create a form and though my work has become more figurative I’m still interested in nature’s quirks. The growth of tree roots and curves of bird feathers are just as engaging as human postures and body language. The interactions of lines and movement never cease to amaze me and my work is continually evolving, reflecting my observations and interpretations of struggle.
