Artist Statement: I have always been fascinated with materiality. I use different materials to explore texture, color, and perspective. I combine large numbers of smaller often simple elements into multi-faceted compositions, gaining complexity and space from their combination. My work often elicits emotion, invites touch and entices the observer to explore it further with multiple senses.
