STATEMENT

I am always trying to create a dialogue between my pieces and their viewer. Recycled and repurposed objects bring nostalgia to a piece and there starts the conversation between the two.

 My creations are intended to stir emotions, thus I create with many layers. Each new layer showing a bit of the one underneath. like any good story bits and pieces are wiped away, covered up, and rewoven that results in a new reality. By doing so in the work reveals unexpected colors, forms and textures.

“THERE IS NO PERFECT” Imperfections are what makes a thing or person interesting and worth taking a second look at. This journey of all these complexities is what my art explores.
