MFA, Emily Carr University of Art and Design


My work situates itself at the intersections of art, design, and contemporary craft. I am drawn to phenomena that relate to the human condition and take inspiration from the natural and physical sciences to generate new forms and conceptions. I use units of designed objects to flesh out forms, installations, and editions. Observations of nature also serve as guiding inspirations in the construction and making of vessels and objects but is not limited to these inspirations alone. I am highly motivated by ceramic material and frequently allow it to guide during the making process where the meaning of a work is derived upon completion.
