found object sculpture – 45 x 15 x 15 in.


I created this sculpture when given an assignment to connect two objects. My photograph magnified its sensuality and power.

‘listen’ captures my desire to be known and loved. It illustrates the deep understanding needed for peace.

artist statement

I use art to process emotional pain. Though my themes are dark, this practice brings about self-compassion.

In my work I confront the disconnection I fear.

I want to offer people and myself reassurance. We are not alone. We all share the experience of being human.
