In some sense, I see my art making as a way to survive; as a way to make sense of some of the feelings and thoughts that constantly filter through my life and, specifically, through my body.

My work is partly about my imaginings of where and how my body processes and stores responses to moments that truly matter to me. These moments are times when I am knocked off balance (sometimes disastrously, sometimes subtly); when instincts and reactions are automatic and unannounced.

Sometimes, I refer to actual organs their forms, physiology, and developmental stages. I am most intrigued with the stomach, gall bladder, esophagus, pelvic area, skin, intestines, and ears. Through frenetic periods of unrestrained making using clay, fruit, and pig intestine, the forms become abstracted and hybridized. Only through the making do I find an ease with the materials and a form that resonates with a particular moment.
