My work is conceptual; my materials and techniques are integral to, and representative of, my subject matter. I use clay and glass to make small fragile objects, organic materials such as branches to speak of the natural world. I make books to tell stories and I alter found objects to make new visual comments. When possible, I combine these elements into an installation, often including the work of other artists who share my interests.
