Artist Statement


My assemblage work is both simple and complex at the same time. It is born from simple material choices that evolve into complex narratives that reference history and time. I begin my process by sifting through piles of materials. This may include wood, metal, plastic, earth materials or found objects. During this time, I discover the inherent character and subtle nuances of each finding. As I bring parts and pieces together, they form connections. It is the dialogue of materials and how they occupy space that embodies the complexity within my work.
