Here, we ask designers to take a selfie and give us an inside look at their life.
Hometown: Hudson, New York.
Studio location: Hudson, New York.
Describe what you make: I sculpt wood, stone, and metal in organic and imperfect ways.
The most important thing you’ve designed to date: My life. I’m living it how I want to.
Describe the problem your work solves: I embrace imperfection as beauty. I understand that we are one with nature.
Describe the project you are working on now: Private commissions and larger stone landscape sculptures that can live in nature.
A new or forthcoming project we should know about: A solo exhibition at Francis Gallery in Los Angeles (until March 25) that features a range of more than 30 works devoted to nature.
What you absolutely must have in your studio: New materials. They inspire me and get me excited to go to work every day. Even if I’m not working on them, I’m looking at them. And natural light—I hate working without it.
What you do when you’re not working: My husband and I are slowly renovating our old farmhouse and studios. Making as much as we can with our own hands. I hang out with my kids, take walks in the forests, read biographies about artists, and meditate. Trying to clear my head.
Sources of creative envy: Isamu Noguchi’s grave. He sourced a giant beautiful boulder and put himself in it. True perfection.
The distraction you want to eliminate: Money and my thoughts.
Concrete or marble? Marble.
High-rise or townhouse? Cabin with a studio in the woods.
Remember or forget? Remember.
Aliens or ghosts? I love ghosts.
Dark or light? Both.
