My work explores concepts like evolution, predator/prey relationships, and totemic imagery. Combining paper clay and acrylics with natural materials like gourds and wood, I often reference elements of folk art and mythology, and enjoy the juxtaposition of bright patterns and ornamentation against raw materials and natural surface textures.
