I’m a Vancouver based artist working with ceramic, stone, metal, organic materials and found objects. My process often involves object collecting and clay; intuitively looking for relationships between materials. My methods of making are hand building, wheel throwing, mould making, carving, assemblage and more; which varies between functional and sculptural. My conceptual practice most often stems from my fascination with anthropology, archaeology, flora, fauna, and the environment; exploring the relationships, behaviours and complexities of life on earth.
