Through my studio practice, I examine human relationship with place, and contemplate intrinsic, contradictory yearnings for belonging and freedom. My work frames distant and local landscapes, with a goal of providing space for the examination of inner and outer worlds.

My ideas find voice through both functional objects and sculpture, united by an interest in reconciling surface to volume. My practice is fed by an ongoing curiosity regarding forming methods as well as the application of printmaking processes to clay. Through the interplay between pictorial and spatial dimensions, it is my intention to create a dialogue between illusory and actual space.
