"I create figurative narratives through allocation. Integration is key; I am challenged to overcome the unique oneness of an object in order to complete a successful work using numerous objects. The object itself, while still keeping its core integrity must surrender to the greater good...my end statement. My more recent sculptures are becoming more like theatrical installations.
The histories of discarded objects interest me and I focus on the associations our society has found in them; intentional or not. The fleeting values we have, and the question of worth is constantly explored. Social issues are often a topic for my work as well.
Detritus, castings, modeling, and painting, help me to define my themes and conversations. Using visual mapping I celebrate us, and our absurdity. We are beautiful, horrid, tragic, and profoundly funny."
