Artist Statement

My artwork frequently involves people, especially faces. In my two-dimensional work, I am interested in creating images that convey both detail and depth. The close relationship between light and shadow in three-dimensional space has influenced my transition of interest to sculpture, specifically with ceramics. I am excited to experiment more with sculpting detailed figures and expressions and to play with exaggeration and distortion of the figures.

I am drawn to ceramics because it is a naturally occurring material. A goal of mine is to relate my work to the environment and human influences on the environment. As part of this goal I think it is important to use a material that is formed through natural processes to make artwork that is relevant to the environment. I plan to develop my technical skill in ceramics and create relationships between my artwork and nature.

Biography
