The Southern Pinwheel
By not having a preconceived idea, my initial ink stains allow me to react in the moment and take chances with mark making. The works become their own curious ecosystems of imperfect marks, complex patterns, and layers.
“My hand will always be imperfect. That’s where the beauty is”
By utilizing burning techniques to add interest to my black and white photographs, I tried to capture the spirit of a man that finds wealth within the work he does.
I made this piece for a ceramics 1 class. The assignment was to make a Chinese Yixing / nature inspired tea pot. I frequently travel to Mexico and took inspiration from the Cacaxtla murals in the state of Tlaxcala. My favorite image is of a jaguar warrior.
This piece was inspired by the stone which reminded me of fall colors. I carried out this theme with the juxtaposition of the leaf motif pierced in one layer with the fall colors peeking through from below. The leaves are etched behind the stone and punched in the bottom corner.

My ceramic sculptures start with a simple idea. Then they spontaneously and organically become a complete piece. My current work has been greatly inspired by music, lyrics, and how you personally relate to a song I aim to create visible representations
of the music that I love
