I strive to create objects of sculpture that comment on my life experiences. I hope viewers identify something familiar in what I create. In this space of familiarity I imagine we feel like we all belong.

I find the human heart is a symbolically loaded organ both visually and metaphorically. Its importance and significance transcends cultures and time. It functions as a key organ in the human circulatory system connecting multiple systems necessary for life. It also has an unlimited potential to function as a vessel of spirituality connecting us to one another and allowing for communication on an entirely deeper plane.
