INTERVIEW

What mediums do you work in?
I have the most experience with sculpture, mixed-media stuff, oddities to bring a piece together.

Basket weaving?
I‘m in a fibers class, I like loose and changing materials and to work with a lot of different things. I like the crashing point where different elements come together and weird people out. I like to ask why does it make me feel that way, what is it about it?

What is your process?
I’m not trying to convey specific thing or idea I’m chasing. I’ll start to plan or sketch but it never ends up that way. The work can evolve in my mind or with by speaking with friends or my professor.

How does a piece finish itself?
I’ll leave it for a long time. If it doesn’t work, I’ll leave it and not touch it, take a breather, leave it until the media combination feels right.
