"What I make investigates relationships of form, color, materials, space, and place. When making and arranging each composition I am interested in following ‘gut’ reactions that I hope to be honest to the sum total my personal experience, and what I hope to experience. I do this through meditated editing and rearranging until I feel that I have achieved a piece that is on the edge of seriousness and quiet peculiarity.  Often when I am making I think of quotidian poetry and how objects and arrangements can reflect the feelings associated with this genre."
