I am interested in creating moments of desired relief from a relentlessly fearful state of mind. A mind driven by chronic anxiety and irrational fears, conjured from thin air out of situations others might not think twice about. Imagery relating to fear, restraint, and desire are brought forward then abstracted or washed out. 
Through both frantic and contemplative mark making I layer material and spatial obsession upon distant memories of safety. Shapes resembling interiors and exteriors of home are created in an effort to recreate those distant memories.  My sculptural work creates a tension between an idealistic stable world and the reality where my mind resides. 
By manipulating symbols related to comfortability and self-assurance I grasp for a world that becomes melancholic once its impossibility is realized.
