My research interests are two-fold. One is experimenting with the properties of white liquid enamel and the variety of color effects that can be achieved with the technique of torch firing. The other is an on-going investigation into the development of natural and handmade mineral pigments.

These material applications provide unexpected and serendipitous results. I exploit these processes to develop work that expresses my interest in both narrative and gestural content utilizing what others often consider ordinary and common material.
