Working with porcelain and stoneware, gouache and eggshells, I create work that asks the viewer to participate by imagining themselves immersed in a fantastical landscape of color, line and texture. I explore how meaning can emerge from pattern, using color as a guidepost. Detail and repetition are important facets of my artistic practice. The imperfection of the handmade is integral because while I strive to create copies, there are inevitably differences the emerge that are inherent in creation. Each is the same; each is different. This creates an interesting dichotomy and a compelling viewing experience, one that invites deeper study of the piece both as a physical object and as a representation of the importance of each individual as a part of the whole.
My art can be seen at Camiba Art Gallery in beautiful Austin, Texas. For more information, to purchase a piece you see on the website or blog, or to discuss a commission, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (512) 965-7061.
