Artist Statement

pacific

Every object I create begins with a walk.

And walking is one of the most natural of human actions. It’s an adaptation that preceded the creation of our species and one of the defining waypoints along our evolutionary path. Before walking, there were no carefully made tools of stone, dances around a fire, or poems.

For millennia, early humans walked over the face of the earth, and these ancient explorers became the first artists. Whether fashioning clay figurines of a female form or using charcoal deep in the caves of Chauvet, our ancestors drew on the earth for their inspiration. Through art, they were reinterpreting a world that they discovered on foot.

I am doing the same thing.

Every object I create begins with a walk. And every object ends as a prayer. The intention behind each piece is to create something sacred — each object an altar, a poem, a song.
