When inspected closely the common thread of security is present in my studio work. Literal interpretations and representations of the house form are present. The house signified my search to find security in physical places and objects. The stereotypical American house form served as a metaphor for my desired traditional family unit – a piece that was missing in the puzzle of my life. Today, it is not the physical places, people, or objects that afford my personal emotional and spiritual security. My security is found in a seemingly simple yet very complex word. Faith. While faith cannot be physically grasped, it is present and true. My current work seeks to depict the permanence in the substance of my faith in the midst of a fleeting world.

 Primary materials used: Clay, ceramic, wood, steel, concrete, found objects.
