"A blend of then and now, classical elements combined with everyday objects, a colliding of two worlds."
There is a musical term that captures the approach I take towards my work; Con·tra·pun·tal, the art of sounding together or combining two relatively independent melodies. I refer to my work as a collision of Classical and the everyday, a mix of then and now. I’m inspired by unexpected pairings whether it be in food, fashion, home or art and I’ve always gravitated toward asymmetry. I channel that inspiration to create juxtaposition art in the form of sculpture where I combine disparate elements that lead one down an unexpected path to a whole new sculptural experience. I’m a self-taught Conceptual artist well versed in the art of mold making, casting and finishing. My sculptures are handcrafted in my home-based studio in Portland, Oregon.
