Artist Statement

Throughout my life I have always been attracted to things, people and places that are over the top. The lavish and the excess feed my creative soul, which I take and interpret the same attention to detail into my studio practice. My work evolves through creative repetition; making the same form over and over, drawing the same images of flora or fauna, tweaking them with sprinkles of spontaneity.

A pop of color here, an action line there. The pleasure is in the process, in working in contradiction of the ordinary. Vivienne Westwood once said "I'm not trying to do something different, I'm trying to do the same thing but in a different way." This quote resonates with me. I'm not trying to reinvent platters, cups or cake stands, but to make pieces infused with my own flavor. I am putting my bold mark on the world. My pieces embody fun and joy. Nothing succeeds like excess and so I decorate over the top; layering patterns with images, creating my own worlds, with lots of color.

My work is a reflection of what kind of world I want to live in. Life can be dark at times or just not going your way. I find, when I'm in my studio, it is my sanctuary. A place to escape. I fill it with what I want to project out into the world. I see my drawings of flowers as full of personality, which is illustrated through their vibrant color combinations. The color and gesture of the flowers express emotions, show movement, and take on a human like quality.
