Artist's Work


    Work introduction



    In-sight   /ˈin-ˌsīt/


    The power or act of seeing into a situation.

    The act or result of apprehending the inner nature of things or seeing intuitively. (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)


    I see and experience the world through my hands, their movement and imprint on clay, that’s where the insight occurs.  My fingerprints not only create the work but are the work itself.

    Every person has singular fingerprints. This is the most personal datum that exists. As an artist, I seek and dream of leaving my mark. I want each work to be my eternal personal fingerprint.
