Her work explores aspects of material culture through still lives, site-specific installations, and photographs. The hand-sculpted glass compositions are comprised of inanimate objects that are metaphors for individuals and society. Every object, whether broken, flawed, or perfect is incorporated into the final composition, literally capturing a moment in time. The process of creating defines the final composition. Concepts of mortality, consumerism, materiality, and temporality (critical issues since the inception of the still life tradition in the 17th century) continue to be relevant.
