a mainly sculptural body of work that is inspired by my observations and personal experiences as a linguist and teacher, exploring language, words, meaning and messages. heavily influenced by current news, linguistic idiosyncrasies and personal experience I apply the materials’ characteristics as a starting point. from there I see the narrative unfold and start to change, add, advance, conceal and reveal, watching the particular work take form.
