Craftsmanship and functionality are very important aspects of my work. Artistically, I am interested in the expression of character. In my toys I work to create the illusion of life or experience in an inanimate creature. In other pieces such as my scarf I work to capture my own character in an abstract way through colour, texture and pattern. Ultimately what I really want to create is a professional, handmade, well designed, and usable product that speaks to its owner.
