Artist statement:

“Making and creating is a link to deep remembering. The objects I make are artifacts and a residue of the process of remembering. It is possible that these artifacts can stir memories for others — not the same memory but connecting to the multiple resonant, dissonant and incommensurate sense of  self and remembering ourselves back into the continuing creation of Life.”
