My work is based on memory and the notion that certain events, moments or conversations embed themselves in our consciousness while others simply flow through. I am fascinated with the idea that although we are inundated with multitudes of experiences, it is only a select few that remain with visceral integrity. My work examines snippets of memory, attending to each no matter how momentous or inconsequential.

Each piece begins with a stream of consciousness drawing representing a particular memory. Layers of glazes are added obliterating some markings and giving preference to others. These glazes add a multidimensional quality and are symbolically significant in representing the passage of time.
