The objects I make are inspired by architecture, by nature as architect, and by my desire to build. The process of building captivates me, and, within that building process, I am fascinated by how decisions are made, how items are organized, and how a structure grows from an idea. I strive to find a balance aesthetically between the industrial and natural worlds with a focus on functionality.
This group of sculptural wall pieces references the ancient understanding of the word mandala from the Sanskrit word for circle. For me the circle as mandala is a place and point in time allowing for contemplation of an inner world and an outer world, while also allowing for movement between inner and outer—between micro and macro. In this way each sculpture is a point in time and in space to focus attention and to recognize the impermanence of a moment with gratitude.
