|As an artist, I am first and foremost a storyteller. I love seeing new worlds and new stories unfold as I work. I sculpt to make tangible new realities and new ways of seeing, new worlds, creatures and dreams. For centuries artists have questioned our assumptions about the everyday, from the human to the divine. I want to build work that questions views of reality, and the way we affect the earth, the objects, and the entities around us. I enjoy creating transformed and transforming
environments, parallel realities of personal culture and peculiar passions.
I want to present ideas, images, and issues in different terms, to create a sense of wonder and possibility. Every world we make is really a dream for, or a nightmare of, our own. The Worlds we make possible or visible in our work are in turn made possible or visible in the greater world around us. By telling stories we create the world and the reality we want to live in.
Writing has been a big part of my life from a very young age. I see emerging worlds and characters everywhere and then must write about them, to find out what happens next. I've been tracking one set of characters since I was thirteen or so, and you can see what's become of them, and of their ever growing world, here.
A full gallery of my freelance illustration work will be avaliable soon. More recent or personal work can be found at my deviantArt account.
I work primarily in graphite, watercolor, and acrylic.
|Pottery | New pottery coming soon...
Clay is the stuff of creation, a material for sculpting both bowls and beings. I enjoy making both functional and sculptural work, and love mixing up the two on occasion.
|The Five Wits | here there be wuzzats
The Five Wits is a business I founded with my dear friend Jessica. Together we've grown this venture into the basis of a gypsy lifestyle caravaning from one venue to another, vending amazingly geeky wares.
