About

Cedar Rapids artist specializing in sculpture, collage, and assemblage

Artist's Statement

My multi-media installations take the form of vast interior landscapes. Inspired by domestic spaces, natural patterns and complex compositional arrangements, these environments offer quiet, yet dramatic glimpses into the familiar. The process of making is a key component to the artwork and often involves simple, repetitive acts as a means to investigate the intersections between art and daily life. Often working with modules, I produce masses of objects that interact to create larger patterns and/or complex relationships. Clay, wood, fabric, wire, plaster and found objects shape these artificial microcosms creating a dialogue between material, object, and viewer.
