Art has been an obsession of mine since I was a little girl. It allows me an outlet to represent a part of me that I have a hard time putting into words – therefore, I create. Making art has become an intuitive and reactionary process. I often start with a loose image of what I want to create, but I’ve learned to allow space for freedom to respond to materials and form during the production of the work. I use human forms, flora and fauna because these three motifs allow me a direct way to illustrate certain emotions. I use clay as my medium because it offers an immediate way to work with form, volume and surface.
