I explore visceral experience through the body’s relationship to material; dissecting how material touch can alter the perception of physical touch, and serve as a point of exchange between artist and viewer.  Borrowing approaches from painting, sculpture, and textiles, I investigate the ephemerality of sensation and modest acts of touch in daily life.  I distill and abstract these moments to offer different perspectives on an experience.  Combining objects from my home and studio, each artwork seeks to hold onto and reimagine different qualities of touch; while also offering a reflection of my own body’s movements.
