The natural world has always been the muse for my work. The feeling I get when I am outside secluded from everything and everyone gives me the ability to take in and appreciate the endless beauty around me. Through my observations I create my own interpretation of the things I see when I wander and translate them into clay. I enjoy creating intricate and delicate textures that cover the surfaces of my sculptural forms. This obsessive decoration adds to the impact of the piece as it mirrors sensations inspired by nature. I let my pieces grow organically into what they are, they tell me what my next move is. I hope my work makes viewers feel surrounded and connected to my sculptures and inspires them to remember a time in which they enjoyed the essence of the outdoors.
