I have more questions than answers. I make art that dances around those questions and plays in the middle of intersections. Where is the line between craft and art? What is the difference between aesthetically pleasing and kitsch? When does interesting become gross? I like my things to be complicated. I like my things to be all the things.
My friend Mary says that I use soft materials to convey hard subjects, and it's discomforting.
I was trained as a writer at a school that considered writing an artistic process. Now I'm an artist and refuse to leave narrative behind. For me, every piece is a story, every story a part of a larger conversation.
The people in my family die young, so I suppose I'm in the middle of my mid-life crisis right now. Hey, I'm early. Let me in. Look at my shiny new art.
