By combining the familiarity of the human form with unexpected elements, I make figurative ceramic sculptures that contend with the classical definition of the genre. My work externalizes and distorts emotion, inviting the viewer to investigate, empathize, and connect with it from a new perspective. My sculptures speak about that which people don’t often talk about in everyday pleasant conversation or advertise on social media. I am inspired by the quiet intimate moments one experiences in solitude. These are often emotional experiences related to anxiety and depression but also universal states such as loss, longing, hope and even boredom. By externalizing these feelings through countenance, distortion, and symbolic textures, I create sculptures that prompt the viewer to reexamine the relationship between their own physical body and emotional interiority.
