As a sculptor, my artistic strategy involves re-contextualizing existing elements: presentation rather than representation. My process is resourceful, responsive, and playful. I spend as much time researching, exploring sites, and scavenging for materials as I do making.
I often work with junk and junk-spaces: materials and places that are overlooked, untended, and thus host to numerous extraordinary possibilities; places where artifacts accumulate and history is most visible. I am also interested in the intersection of nature and culture, including the varied representations of plant-life for commercial and decorative purposes.
I produce public interventions, work for traditional gallery settings, web-based projects, and publications. I learn different things from each way of working.
