Artist Statement

My work is the result of an instinctual reaction to materials. These visceral connections are at the core of my practice. Appropriated images, found objects, and nontraditional media are juxtaposed in ways that resonate with me during an intuitive creative process. Of particular interest to me is visualizing a new purpose for discarded materials, eliciting their intrinsic value, and producing work using the most immediate means. The results are sometimes abstract, usually wry, and always part of an ongoing inner dialogue.
