Artist Statement & Biography
I look at my pieces as individual time capsules: vessels containing meaning and memories. Nostalgia, place, interaction, and ritual are all facets I incorporate within the work. Each sculpture is carefully planned but I allow the material to direct me while I am working . I make objects that to me are the “everyday extraordinary.” These are moments with objects we tend to overlook which shape us and make us, moments I am passionate about making small-scale monuments for.

What I Love Doing
I love capturing a narrative in metal. I love making parts move with mechanisms I fabricate from hand. I love talking to people about their own history and how something I have created sparks an old memory.
What I Find Beautiful
I find the natural patterns (patina) that occurs on metal after being heated under flame to be beautiful. I also find a full cup of tea paired with a record player playing to be beautiful.
My Favorite Memory
My favorite memory spans across many years- which is all the time I took to sit on a front porch swing with my Grandpa.
My Favorite Art Style
Not surprisingly, I love craftsman and mission style art/craft. I also love surrealism.
