During childhood on my family’s organic farm, daily interactions with plants and animals caused a sense of wonder and connection to the landscape. My current work references this personal experience while responding to a human desire for closeness to the natural environment represented by animals. In my practice, I sculpt figurative animals integrated with vessels to create symbiotic forms intended to enter the domestic space. Each animal is presented in a position of honor and integrity, aiming to invoke an introspective response while the corresponding vessel invites human interaction.
