artist statement

The ways in which we cultivate our self-presentations tell a narrative that is sometimes louder than (and often in conflict with) what we might say about ourselves if prompted verbally to tell our “story.” These constructions are the types of narrations that I am most drawn to expressing in my sculpture. They unwittingly reveal aspects of our personalities that we might not always be aware of, or prepared to share. Sometimes these stories are very individual expressions, at other times they reflect the narrative of our collective culture. They alternate between performance and truth.
