Our artwork is a curiosity cabinet for a collection that we place ourselves within.
Like any room we occupy, we fill it with impressions of who we are.
My work is a collection of relics and manuscripts conveying and preserving the routine of
action, sexuality and silence, while shapes are formed in the essences of the erotic and austere.
The basis of my works has been drawn from my Pennsylvania Dutch roots.
The manuscripts of my lineage were instrumental in detailing life and death, spiritual
poetry and house blessings.
My work repeatedly blends various materials; with each material telling the tale of its own story I use them to tell my own; ceramic conveys qualities of fragility and coolness, while felt often lines the walls for silence, wax drives of the technique of encaustic (preservation), and alas wood for its primitive origin.
