Growing up in a quirky family, I found that a lighthearted approach to my day-to-day life was a norm. Rules and planning were laid out for us, but there was always room for flexibility. Understanding that things happen, problems arise, and we learn to work with them. I have learned to take the same approach in my creative process.
The product of my process defines it’s own precision. Each lean, line, and mark takes on it’s own character. Dancing on the line between too far and just right is where I embrace the natural movement of materials using them to my advantage.
Quirkiness arises from attempts at precision. By embracing this I allow for the manifestation of a new idealized form. Working this way has proven to be a metaphor of how I move through life. The simplest of changes or expressions can transform any heavy moment to a lighter one.
