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