Statement

By abstracting the forms of functional objects and improvising with materials, I make objects and images that are recognizable without being identifiable. These forms belong to an interior realm where objects have the capacity to transcend their traditional roles. Devices such as the weaving and draping of fabric, openings within forms, and suspension from fixtures offer suggestions to unknown functions. The use of materials associated with the domestic domain are markers of traditionally undervalued pursuits that hold dormant potential. I manipulate these materials until I can sense the object or image's presence.
