My forms are inspired by my memories as well as my daily experiences and my emotional reactions to them. For me, creating is a form of play in which I formally investigate thoughts and feelings, memories, desires, and expectations. Whether I’m working in a controlled or a spontaneous method, process is very important. By rearranging different components of each piece and by using traditional as well as unconventional ways of working with a material, I attempt to discover new relationships among the things around us.
