My classroom work emphasizes the importance of this individual voice, communicating through sculptural work and materials as well as transforming understandings of both objects and the space they inhabit.
The work that inspires me deals with the preservation of memory and works that reveal the story of mysterious or unknown persons including documentary photography, relics, historic preservation, and art that represents people, places and distinct moments in time.
