She is driven to create by the innate desire to communicate, problem solve, build, tear down and challenge conventional methods, in order to make her world a more meaningful and interesting place.
As a sculptor she fills space with ideas of simplicity and order creating an empty that utilizes warmth and memory leaving one free to reflect and fill a space of their own.
