I create sculptures and installations that focus on the psychology of home. Sections of walls, floors, and interior spaces are used as a stage to address emotional tension, in humorous or absurd ways. The works are participatory, inviting the viewer to physically engage with them in different ways. Sometimes they pose a physical challenge, such as balancing a floor, or climbing waves of carpeting, and other times they change the viewers perspective by inviting them to lie down or by obstructing their view. Other times, simple acts such as walking across the room become a challenge.
I use home construction materials and decorative elements, such as plywood, carpeting, and wallpaper. The titles are usually idioms that imply both a physical and emotional meaning. As part of my working process, I use journal writing as a springboard for my ideas, or I play with a material I am attracted to and work with its inherent associations.
