Artist’s Statement
Organic species are what I enjoy sculpting most, but bringing the plant life inside as opposed to their normal exterior environment is what sparks my attention. Living in different climates has opened my eyes to many different weather conditions that plants, especially flowers, can and cannot survive in.  If it were up to me, we would live in a world where every species of flower we enjoy could flourish year round.  With the clay, I am able to manipulate the flowers and plants to my liking, as well as controlling their structure, color, shape, and size, whether it be realistic, or fantasy.  This way, the viewer and myself are able to observe the organisms in any environment, any time of the year.  
Clay Paper Scissors is not only a gallery but also provides studio spaces for rent. They currently have a space available call 307-631-6039 to make an appointment to see the space
