Statement

With current US politics attempting to reverse women’s rights, I choose to take part in the 4th Wave of Feminism, and create art to keep these rights moving forward. Much of my body of work consists of feminine-inspired forms and objects with strong feminist content. The colors and topics are loud but I also work to inject humor into these heavy topics. I strive to make work that is functional and domestic, attempting to keep these conversations at the ‘everyday’ level, thereby making my art more inclusive for multiple audiences, as opposed to limiting it to specific groups or sites. Clay is my material of choice because it is a malleable material that encourages touching. I am interested in seeing how the soft becomes strong, and I am pleased with the tactile sensations of the finished projects.
