Watercolor Memorials
Steel Forms
Wax Paintings

This body of work explores the structure of houses as repositories of memories, desires and loss.  
The open steel forms delineate boundaries while communicating function, power structure, delicacy and strength.

Two-dimensional works employ translucent materials in order to create a sense of dimension and light.  Layered watercolor memorials feature custom-designed ceramic vases.

Artist Statement
My work employs translucent materials such as watercolor, layered tracing paper and wax to evoke the atmospheric qualities of light. It often explores my interests in contemplative spaces and interpersonal relationships.

Layering materials both conceals and reveals forms, suggesting dimension and history.  

Small works often lead me to make larger installations or sculptures, but I continually return to the two-dimensional surface.
