Artist's Statement

As an artist and architect, my work regularly reflects on the conventions and history of everyday and home; our daily routines, especially those leaving or requiring marks: how our decisions are affected in nature and gained by the associations of experience, rituals, memory and perception. There is great satisfaction completing an object, which requires a lot of focused effort, with limited knowledge about the method. The laborious and repetitive nature of making act as my guide and largest challenge. The process has become a tremendous struggle. Working in a profession dominated by men, I chose to use a mediums/methods historically defined as “women’s work”. As I am regularly reminded of my gender differences, I believe the scale and duration challenges these perceptions.
