Much of my work has evolved from a fascination with repeated patterns and multiple units. While primarily ceramic-based, it often incorporates other media in an installation format. My conceptual focus, intended or not, is almost always on the personal, almost always on the interior realm.

For the past several years I have been making work that treats clay as fabric—exploring everything from women’s work and its relationship to textiles to dresses of memory.

Currently, I am creating floor-based landscapes and gardens—colorful, constructed sanctuaries—for those in need of escape.
