I’m a sculptor making functional art based in Brooklyn. I explore the concepts of ‘home’ and domesticity by making sculptures and objects that reflect idealized dreams and desires of home. My focus is on the paradox of ‘feeling at home’ in our domestic spaces, a desire that often eludes us due to the uncanny realities of everyday life. Through various methods, often involving camp and kitsch sensibilities, I explore how storytelling, world building, and representations of the surreal and fantastical might help one navigate, or perhaps even attain, the longing for something more.
My work has been exhibited at Design Miami and in group shows with Objective Gallery, Superhouse Gallery, Adorno Design, IRL Gallery and in collaborations and projects with Kips Bay Decorator Show House, Diptyque, Ian Charms, and Susan Alexandra. My work and thoughts have been featured in Architectural Digest, Sight Unseen, Surface, Hypebeast, Domino, Curbed, Stirpad, Pink Essay, and more.
