Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

I live and work in Prince George’s County, MD, outside Washington, DC. BFA in sculpture from Auburn University, MFA from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. 

My studio practice of digging native clays led to collaborations with soil scientists and work that explore intersections of art and science.  Noticing cause and effect in the environment, I steal strategies that inform the visual and the physical forces behind my work. I am interested in ways that beauty can foster stewardship… how a small souvenir of soil can carry great meaning, stories and emotional impact. I am the Director of Red Dirt Studio, an artist incubator in Mt. Rainier, MD that is especially good at nurturing important work under the guise of happy hours and porch chats. I am also Co-Director and founding member of NY Urban Soil Institute’s Art Extension Service.
