The central theme in my work  is the fragility of the human condition. In my work, I touch and examine our awareness to the vulnerability we all experience in our daily lives. Emulating a memory of the body and its fragility, I am building the skin in a rich, allusive language. In its physicality, it is a re-imagined object. The layering of our skin underlines our personal story that we cover and hide. The sensual, almost tender casing for these fitted forms representing parts of the body. Abstracted within the figure. These pieces attempt to cope with the fine lines between mortality and beauty.
