The primary theme within my creative process is the exploration of preciousness and play within the studio practice. Preciousness, is not only the value or quality of the materials themselves but more so what they represent. I find myself choosing and treasuring things that have a story and a link that represent emotional connections. Therefore, it is essential for the creative process to give the artwork the same significance, disregarding where it came from or how it was constructed. I want to create raw pieces that are put together intuitively by exploring the different materials and invite the viewer to become part of the journey.
