Based on varied interests in art making, these works encompass conceptually rooted, process oriented, projects. Elements of both the handmade, and the provisional (e.g. found, makeshift, or modified objects), are combined to explore the idea at hand; with each piece being informed by, and developed through, research and personal experience.

The world of craft was my foray into art making. A foundation in fine woodworking and ceramics (via technical school and community college) cultivated my interests in thoughtfully considered works that speak to the heart and mind through the hand. This focus was further developed through studies in fine art and art theory - leading to a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies degree from the University of Miami.
