Artist Statement

Furniture and architecture are extensions of ourselves.  There is an inherent intimacy in our physical and psychological dependence on our environments.  Iā€™m interested in the subconscious power of everyday forms and creating emotional responses through their abstraction and alteration. My sculptures explore themes of the body, memory, quietness, and the uncanny.
