I see my work as play. It’s about creative combination and connection, bringing together materials and objects in surprising ways. It’s also about exploring the beauty of contrast through juxtaposition of disparate raw materials, sometimes in asymmetrical composition. Often, the objects I use are the precious, yet overlooked, artifacts of everyday life. I’m an obsessive collector of those tiny treasures. Through my work, I give them new context and meaning, elevating them from the mundane to the beautiful.
