I am an artist of inquiry. I use found object and mixed media to create poetic metaphors through sculpture that comment on the human condition. I am interested in the limitations of materials and investigating their attributes. So often as artists we are asked to carefully plan and sketch out our works, confined to a frame or pedestal. However, I produce the most significant work when I set the original intention aside. I find it’s full potential by re-working, and understanding the boundaries of the given material and not presupposing the end result.
