Artist Statement




My artwork is my meditation on the mysteries of nature, domesticity, and relationships, but it is also about my search for wisdom when my own flaws and frailties guarantee a myopic view of whatever truth I might discern. I find that my carefully weighed conclusions about the human condition and my own place within it challenge me more than they provide any meaningful sense of safety, comfort, or promise of a happy ending. To exist is to struggle; to seek answers, however flawed they may be, is human nature. In my artwork, this translates as an attention to process and labor-intensive practice.
