I am a passionate skeptic finding beauty in the shadows and the worn. I enjoy working with plaster, one of the most ancient building materials. Using a combination of earthen mixtures of clay, sand, and straw, I connect with the ground and the rhythm of life. I see the evolution of structure and the entropic patina of decomposition. The juxtaposition of what is and what was is a balance I look for in all aspects of my creative process.
