artist statement

My personal goal as an artist is to expand my own perception of reality in order to confront challenges in my everyday life with more awareness. I attempt to create work that is both functional and meditative in experience, providing a catalyst for personal growth. I have chosen to use porcelain as my medium because of its delicate appearance, strength of material and its translucency to light. As part of my process I embrace the flaws of my work, and attempt to bring purpose and illumination to those things we find less desirable, for every imperfection is an opportunity to expand, develop, and transform.
