           I make objects, sculptures and installations that explore the relationships between our bodies and the built environment — between emotion and materiality.  I am particularly concerned with the intersection of intimacy and utility. Over time, places where we confront ourselves as bodies, such as the kitchen and the bathroom, come to carry meanings beyond how they are used.  I reimagine familiar objects in unexpected materials, making shifts in scale and in orientation. By collapsing the familiar and the strange, my work explores the poetic qualities of functional objects and spaces. What memories do these the shapes and materials trigger?  What non-linear narratives coalesce?
