With paintings, prints, drawings, installations, and performances I utilize domestic refuse, both physical and emotional, to investigate the intersections and qualities of relationships between ourselves and the people or items that surround us. With this exploration I utilize craft and humor in hopes of creating an immediate entry point for the viewer into a world that often has a bleak mental interior. Projects may feel like disparate siblings, while a thread of personal experience attempts to hold them precariously together. Failures (from the tiny to the monumental in both process and life) are embraced, and the spaces, times, and patterns that haphazardly form in domestic life are filtered through material techniques in attempts to develop some semblance of harmony.
