I am inspired by the organic forms found in nature, and the wood and clay I often use come directly from the natural world. I sway towards non-functional pieces with feminine curves, bright colors, and fluidity. Many of my sculptural pieces bring attention to the dichotomy of mechanically processed versus naturally inspired. I attempt to highlight the differences in materials such as glass vs. wood, opaque vs. transparent, and geometric vs. organic.
