In all my work, I am looking for the same place: the spot between harmony and discord that gives energy as it also provides refuge. I get a lot of my energy from materials, which can entice me out of nowhere into new lines of work, such as the sculpture made of scrap wood that I began in 2013 and then returned to in 2018. At any given moment, I am using papier maché in one place, putting gesso over an old canvas nearby, and clamping bits of wood together wherever I can find room.
