I work in metal because I find it seductive. It moves, flows, stretches, and compresses as it responds to hands and tools. My work is a conversation; I make my points, and the metal responds. Because our roles are sometimes reversed, I must also listen. The material limitations and allowances of metal inform the final forms in my work; I am interested in highlighting and drawing attention to the role that materiality plays in making.
I recently completed my MFA at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. I received my bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the State University of New York at New Paltz in 2013.
