Artist Statement: The world grows smaller each day and we all strive for individuality to define ourselves. We sometimes forget those things that connect us, those images and feelings that we all have no matter who, or where we are. I seek to find those primal images that connect us all and represent them in my work through form and decoration. The images are from historical record, dreams and media old and new. My vessels attempt to hold more that the physical, they hold histories, ideas and emotions and they show this through their form, composition and decoration.
