Statement: I am a sculptor working primarily in ceramics and mixed-media installations with undulating puzzle-like pieces conceptualized through free association. I am drawn to the unpredictable nature of clay and how it creates a magical separation between me and the end result. The way the glaze melts feels like a gift. I find inspiration in the contrast between this ancient material and contemporary aesthetics. I strive to elevate the ordinary and infuse it with surreal playfulness using bright colors and pop imagery to create a dream world of femme empowerment, cuteness, and decadence, where cats reign supreme. My experiences and identity as a multicultural woman and mother drive my art. I'm forever searching for the uncanny feelings, and the heart swells that shape our lives, and I hope to create a world that is both fantastical and relatable.
