ARTIST STATEMENT {excerpt}

My porcelain slip casting work has always been about how we create and modify our identity based on feedback and input from a socially networked world. Every day we can be someone else based on our needs, whims, crowdsourcing, the media. We have the ability to change ourselves however we need to just to survive that day. One day you can stand out, one day you can fade into the background.
