I find questions are more important than answers. I relish tension, whether the tension that leads to an excellent joke or the tension of opposition and critique. I’m fascinated by myriad forms of self-description— the warring balance of physical and emotional, personal and cultural. Against these often conflicting concepts, I strive to capture the tranquility I find in small detail. My process often settles into a rhythm of noticing-- welcoming and placing emphasis on the small beauties that may go unnoticed if the goal is attaining the perfect object. By finding correspondence between refinement and the imperfect I hope to leave room for others to enter my work.
