I want to connect affluent art objects with contemporary culture. To do this, I make colorful porcelain objects that are both three dimensional paintings and functional containers. They combine vibrant material with contemporary aesthetics borrowed from pop culture, fashion, tattoos, modernist paintings and other sources. Together, they form a basic working vocabulary of color relationships and compositions highlighting what I see as defining elements of our current culture.
