I have an ongoing interest in the play of materials and processes related to language, color and the intersection of painting and ceramics, textiles and video. I am an observer of culture and fold this into my personal narrative to produce work that references artifact, symbol and the use of multiples. Research interests include media theory, psychology, Indigenous art and medicine, sacred spaces, religion and mythology. While my artwork crosses many disciplines I am rooted in the practice of Ceramics, which informs everything I do.
