My work focuses on ceramic installation; I make objects that I use to create larger spaces so that a viewer can enter in, and have a whole experience that engages multiple senses. Currently I continue to develop my skills using the CAD program Rhino 3-d to design work that can use 3-d printing, laser cutting, and CNC milling as a tool to create objects and design spaces. I have also recently completed two public art commissions, which is a new arena for me.
