Artist bio: I’m a queerdo living my best life dancing in the liminal space between dichotomies.
As anyone who loves a good meme as much as I do, I can honestly say “There are two wolves….” I’m absolutely fascinated by items cast off from industrial practices or interesting nature tidbits. I am a magpie for that which glitters, makes bold shapes or has bright color. What I collect and incorporate into each piece is a love song of the city, of nature. Strung taut between fascination for human ingenuity, bemused by our penchant for generating waste and my awe of the slower pace of the seasons, tides, nature’s cyclical deconstruction in which nothing is wasted.
The limitations and planning required, especially with types of materials I invite into my pieces, pose interesting challenges. Once the elements are combined with traditional metalsmithing and fiber arts techniques into a beautiful cohesive work of art – I can almost hear an audible click when all of the elements neatly align.
