Abstract

My artistic exploration involves manipulating color and material to create objects with a functional or wearable purpose. I am most interested in how the object connects with a habitation, or the person wearing my art. To fully explore these relationships, I employ color, technical, and material knowledge from metalsmithing, as well as from other studio areas like sculpture, drawing, and ceramics. I gravitate towards brighter colors because of the euphoric emotion it invokes to the viewer or wearer. I question how the use of color can change the wearer’s atmosphere; creating a different view of the work that is not focused on the work itself, but the emotion provoked by being worn.
