ARTIST STATEMENT

Creating furniture, utilitarian objects, is my core focus. I like to use minimalist forms, often paired with simple flowing line, to help bring personality and playfulness to the work. The objects seek attention, they flirt to catch your eye, entice the viewer to come closer to touch, to explore, to discover. Sketching is an indispensable part in my process. Often, I am inspired by a gesture or form in an early sketch that begins the dance of a new work. The challenge is to keep the freshness of this gesture alive while continuing to develop the piece. I find myself going back and forth between drawing and 3D mock up until I really understand the essence of this new object. The details and the structure develop out of this exploration and usually don’t crystallize until I begin on the final work.
