Artist Statement
This work conjures a loose association to the iconography of early Christian art, such as the tradition of icon painting and altar pieces through the configuration of found and weathered materials.

Artist Statement
This image shows a very high-tech, industrial coat-check room. What I saw was an emptiness and loneliness, a room devoid of almost any human touch.

Artist Statement
As a Fashion Design major, I incorporated fashion into ceramics by making a designer purse with an animal flare…thus an armadillo designer handbag. Roadkill and hazardous waste are current issues we deal with everyday.

Artist Statement
This piece was inspired by “Lord of the Flies”. The work evolved after I lost someone very important to me, and experienced the way people handled death…particularly the ceremonial presentation of his body during the funeral.
