Artist’s Statement

My work explores interactivity – how the attitude and shape of furniture sculpts our space, and how our space shapes our attitudes and actions. I make furniture that invites people into a story. I’m interested in how a piece starts a conversation and becomes a catalyst for making meaning. Drawing from my travels, love of history and typography, my pieces push the limits of materials and often feature unexpected combinations. From 3D mashups of found objects and fine woodworking, to animatronic fish spouting turning points in art theory, or molten aluminum joinery cast directly into wood, my furniture addresses contemporary issues of permeability and transition.
