My work is influenced by minimalist architecture, positive memories of houses I have lived in, and the notion of home. Naturalness and simplicity are essential as I find uncomplicated geometric forms pleasing and comforting. Fragmented but familiar architectural features suggest the idea of a house without giving away too much. Looking at vernacular architecture has helped me to simplify the structures, to keep them ambiguous yet suggestive. The rough paperclay provides the tactile qualities and surfaces that encourage haptic experiences. Through many layers of ink washes I build up a patina to enhance the texture and hint the passing of time. In my work I want to achieve both a visual and tactile appeal that evokes some sense of homeliness yet leaves space for personal interpretation.
