Artist Statement

I am interested in the faux nature of parks and gardens. I generate ceramic multiples that record evidence of my hand. The arbitrariness in this process parallels unplanned outcomes in nature, with different textures, growing patterns, and shapes. Every installation of these pieces creates a new landscape while responding to surrounding space. Re-imagined each time, these works investigate the cyclical nature of existence and rely on viewer interaction to alter their form and investigate the dynamics between the natural and the human.
