Curious by nature, I am fascinated with outcomes from using different materials and tools. I believe that the creative process is an encounter with the unknown, opening a door to intimacy with new ways of seeing to make something both beautiful and challenging. Stepping into a process of discovery, I know that chance, confidence, the imprint of tools and materials, and maintaining an open mind will lead me into new territory – something beyond what is known. Each piece of work embodies an open question, living into the answer of this moment. Throughout it all, I am intimate with the discovery process and the beauty of the outcome.
