My work is inspired by the visual clatter of the mundane places I know best, the domestic environment, or the tilted landscape of my weekend garden. In my home, possessions are stacked and scattered, organized and misplaced, remembered and forgotten. This dichotomy informs and inspires my studio practice. I make piles to gain control and find order in a world of excess data, information and consumer goods. In my work I combine, collect, and sort – layering small bits to make an arrangement of color and shape that becomes a monument to the minutiae of my daily life.
