My Statement 

Repeat observation and subsequent experimentation asks and answers questions about how and why a thing is and what could it become. I want the audience to share this experience to pry away existing understandings and to try and conceive their own definition.

I have undergone many changes to my style and the type of work I have produced. What started as heavily experimental during my years as an art student became more traditional when reconnecting with my families roots in craft. For a time, I lost myself in trying to understand who I was as an artist, a maker. I reconnected with woodturning, which I practiced when I was younger. And from there I began to work my way forwards. Now I am beginning to reconnect the old with the new as I start to understand how things that seem so different are in fact one and the same. The understanding of material.
