Artist Statement



Throughout our lives, we come into contact with so many objects, that we’ve lost a connection to who has made them or to whom they belong.


Finding a way to honor these objects and utilize them became my sole intention in my art making practice. I was taught to put love into everything you touch, the mending of clothes, the repairing of objects, the building of projects, the act of cooking and feeding another, these actions are all done through your hands, these are all ways we nurture others and express emotion.


Everything that I create, repair, and collect, I also nurture and protect. Through the processes of collecting, nurturing, and repairing found objects, I create sculptural and performative works that explore the emotional and psychological effects of objects as they relate to familial memory and the various processes one uses to nurture and express love.
