Artist Statement

When I use a tool for the first time, I have the same nervous feeling I used to get when I had to read out loud. I weigh the potential dangers of losing a finger, damaging the tool, or destroying the thing I'm making. The use of tools, and the outcomes they make possible, allows me to convey my thoughts and feelings while questioning standardized routes of communication. My work explores universal forms of communication versus idiosyncratic, dynamic means of expression.
