My narratives are explorations of a character’s relationship with their internal and external worlds. The psychological states they exist in are personal, yet intended for universal interpretation. The narratives are meant to be curious and ambiguous as the characters give subtle clues, hidden within a slight giggle or dashing of the eye in response to their unfortunate circumstance. They are intended to have undertones of heavy subject matter but with a digestible delivery. This delivery is achieved through their childlike, playful natures and bold colors. I make the narratives on a larger scale, but here they are represented on hand built porcelain forms combined with decorative floral and geometric patterns intended for everyday use and enjoyment.
