Throughout my life I have always been attracted to things, people and
places that are over the top. The lavish and the excess feed my
creative soul, which I take and interpret the same attention to detail
into my studio practice. My work evolves through creative repetition; making the same form over
and over, tweaking it with sprinkles of spontaneity. The best pleasure
is the creativity, not expecting the ordinary.
Vivienne Westwood once said "I'm not trying to do something different,
I'm trying to do the same thing but in a different way." This quote
resonates with me. I'm not trying to reinvent plates or cups or bowls, but to make pieces
infused with my own flavor and put my mark on the world. My pieces
contain this essence of fun and joy. Nothing succeeds like excess and so
I decorate over the top; layering patterns with images of animals that I
have a connection and infinity to are critical in my studio practice.
