The work on this site includes handmade objects and images, created with a sense of respect for the everyday world - a respect for all that is shared in common and all that is different or unique. 
I see importance in acknowledging that sameness and difference are inseparable parts of each person, thing, and relationship.  By looking for how sameness and difference collaborate in the world, I join subjects, materials, and work methods into deceptively simple presentations. My hope is that after spending time and living with one or more of these works, new discoveries & layers of meaning become evident. 
Please reach out to me if you are interested in a purchase that matches your budget and living situation.
