Evolving Statement

As an artist, educator, and craft researcher, I want to spark in others the enthusiastic curiosity in learning that I myself feel when encountered with new ideas that fuel my thoughts and imaginations. Engaging people in conversations and opening space for reflections. These spaces I envision as places where all forms of reflection and conversation are welcomed with no hierarchy or set ideas of how knowledge needs to be shared. Through honest and kind interactions, inspired by concepts of radical hospitality I want to explore with others the endless possibilities we can find when we think collaborative about crafts, art, histories and the personal connections we have with these. Using  written words, metals as well as a range of other materials I seek to express stories of which my passionate involvement has made me a part of.
