Whether working in clay, fabric, or found objects, my practice regularly engages with and supports me in learning the nature of and possibilities within “free” materials around me (materials and objects of the world outside the stream of commerce). So much of our art is inevitably influenced by the art industry—art education, art supplies—I am drawn to those moments of escape, those rare breaths of non-monetary creation wherein artists redefine value and wealth. I am drawn to looking closely and discovering the raw and profoundly resonant power of the unseen and unassuming.
