Artist Statement


Inspired by my academic background in chemistry, I’m constantly seeking, experimenting, and exploring the intersection between science and art. My work draws the two disciplines together to show their complementary interdisciplinary nature. I am driven to create works that integrate science and the arts in a 21st century synthesis of creativity and innovation.  Often I employ a variety of unusual chemicals in my clay body and glaze recipes to create unique results. My work is described as otherworldly, evoking connotations of the alien biology or chemistry. Despite this connotation, in addition to chemistry, I draw inspiration from the nature in this world.
