Using high fire clay, hand building methods and the pottery wheel, I explore narratives that are close to my heart. Mothering, feminism, gender fluidity, sexuality, anti-racism, and organic phenomena are all themes that occur in my work and reflect my experience. I contrast images from the Western canon of art history with modern social constructs for inspiration. Abstraction and organic forms allow me the freedom to express my inner world and give the viewer an opportunity to come to their own conclusions in how they relate to the work. Art and creativity are a way of life for me. Recently I am exploring macro photography and I would like to add elements of performance and sound to my artistic repertoire. I am committed to being a professional artist. I have an entrepreneurial spirit and a strong work ethic. I believe that being an artist is a risk I take to be seen and heard. I feel that my art has the capacity to bring emotions to the surface, challenge notions of beauty, and stimulate growth.
Ma démarche s’appuie sur une recherche conceptuelle concernant des thèmes tels que la représentation du corps, la conscience du soi, l’expérience féminine et la dualité et ce, par des suggestions abstraites et organiques ainsi que des contrastes de formes, de textures et de volumes. J’utilise des méthodes traditionnelles et des matériaux classiques mais je les aborde d’un angle intuitif, sensuel, instinctif et contemporain, ce qui en rehausse la qualité expressive.
