About me

Industry Arts
Location Richmond, Virginia, United States
Introduction The content of my work is directly influenced by the architectural and historical surroundings in the places where I live, combined with a dedication to sculpting narratives in miniature environments. Working with porcelain I illustrate places where you can see the intricate entanglements of history in thick layers, while challenging the popular reputation of the medium. The little isolated worlds I create are inspired by waking life observations and guided by dream imagery. The imagery currently includes local buildings, homes, abandoned places, trees, subterranean levels, and archeology. Working with the porcelain I personify these inert objects to portray social and interpersonal relationships in an accessible manner.
