“My recent work combines elements of familiar scenes and objects into a visual narrative. Each piece makes subtle references to objects from the past blended with imagery from my current environment. This may kindle a sense of passing time and suggest the cyclical nature of all things. For a viewer, I hope to evoke a feeling, thought, or a hint of nostalgia.
I’m drawn to glass for its material and symbolic properties. In its molten state, glass leaves room for improvisation and the unexpected. I often bring other materials into the mix to create contrast and depth. For me, this starts a conversation within the piece and adds to an unfolding narrative.”
