My work and research focus on the concept of the remembered and objects that contain presence of memory, both physically and emotionally. The handcrafted, collected, and found objects that I incorporate into my work are recognizable as banal objects. However, in my hands, through a process of reexamination they acquire new meaning, significance, and a perspective that is uniquely personal and transformative.
My work takes shape through a method that relies on intense repetition enacted by the physical nature inherent in craft. The repetitive act of my practice in turn, becomes meditative, allowing me to achieve an emotional resonance with the work that can be seen in the its final form. Conceptually, my work asks the viewer to acknowledge the objects that surround them and to reflect and appreciate the significance contained within them.
