STATEMENT
I am interested in capturing an intimate moment with the viewer: shared seconds of authenticity. Quiet forms, reflective mirror finishes and soft porcelain build the personality of my pieces and demonstrate my own search for authenticity and delight. The intimate scale of my miniatures begs the viewer to come close and relish the moment.

My work is the process of searching for the root of something very human and very tender.
