I am currently exploring a new body of work, larger and solely sculptural. This body uses steel wire and weaving techniques to create structures referencing baskets and floral forms. Often moving, changing jobs and always looking for new adventures, my life is in continual flux, forcing me to constantly adapt to my new surroundings. The comforting forms of baskets and abstracted floras allow me to create my own garden and home where ever I travel. The basket is a form that connects me to my mother’s and grandmother’s kitchen. The flora connects me to my mother’s gardens, and her never-ending devotion to the change of seasons.
