I’m a lover of words and how we piece them together, much like clay, to create meaning. My current body of work refers specifically to cloud related idioms (every cloud has a silver lining, head in the clouds, on cloud nine, etc). I make whimsical, voluminous forms that reflect the playful nature of the idioms themselves. The recognizable iconography of the cloud--the caricature, if you will--provides an access point to enter the language of my work, allowing space for reflection on the role these simple phrases play in our lives. My goal is to spark joy in daily routines--to infuse some whimsy in the act of slicing butter and sipping a morning coffee.
