I often think lyrically moving from song to song in my heart/mind, and scripturally. Being alert of the relationship of and reflection between the natural and the spiritual. It is my desire to work in just about every medium and represent and or manifest all concepts or ideas in many different ways. The origin of allot of my work is the doodles. I began scetching in existing books when I was in college at OSU I found this to be freeing. My doodles usually take on a buglike, plantlike, birdlike, and or fishlike appearance. I'm very much influenced by nature and enjoy incorporating actual natural specimens in my pieces by way of hot glue or slip casting. I am most passionate about ceramics and love to use my woodcut printmaking tools to carve meticulously into my pieces. I am in Love with denim and choose to paint on it and make jewellery and other accessories out of it. I also enjoy making pieces that hang allowing for movement. I believe movement gives the illusion of life.
Concepts past and present include; Natural and Spiritual Metamorphosis- 2nd Corinthians 5:17 Broken^Beautiful Psalms 51:17
“Made New” Rev 21:5
Habitats and Echo Systems ;God is my source and dwelling place.
I was extremely excited to introduce a new line of jewellery this past Feb: The True Hope Collection (T.H.C.)est.2018 consisting of metal hearts, crosses, butterflies, and doves. A portion is donated to help people that might be contemplating suicide and or addicted to opiates.
