my ideas begin in my toes. they travel up through my pelvis, intestines, and heart, and make their way into my fingertips to guide me through clay and paper. what develops is a form that represents my interactions with people, dogs, cars, or trees. these various interactions have positive and negative outcomes, based on my own personal discomforts and lack of confidence in myself. they happen everyday; when i am walking, riding my bike, or sitting and staring at an empty wall. i use clay and paper because they are materials that can be so strong, and at the same time incredibly fragile. they are both constantly teetering between these two states, which emulates my emotional state beautifully. i build these objects because it makes me feel like life is going to be okay. as soon as an idea encroaches my insides i am left unbalances, and the wobbling will not stop until the idea takes form in three dimensions. it is important to me that the objects conjure up a dialogue, even if it is with yourself when you are asleep.
