    Artist's Statement

    I am obsessed with the relationship between humans and their sentimental objects. Through processes of casting, weaving, and assembly, I uncover feelings and questions about why we collect and keep things that serve no apparent function. I believe the reason people cherish sentimental objects is because they are an extension of our own mortality, connecting us to times, relationships, and places that we can no longer exist within, and even help us live beyond death in the passing-on of heirlooms. For me, the line between where this relationship serves a person, and where it becomes toxic or parasitic, is unclear, and something I personally contend with in life and in the studio.
