Artist’s statement

The sculptures are precise, organic, light-filled and suspended. When I make them I sometimes feel like a spider spinning her web but mostly it’s a repetitive process of making a form with a line.

My friend the artist, James Siena told me that if you’re working on something you really like and it’s personal it shows—and because I make these sculptures completely with my hands—I think it does.
