Artist Statement

Bees, botanicals, minerals, and little mysteries comprise this collaged composition about the complexities of nature, time, and impermanence (with a little inspiration from Radiohead's Pyramid Song thrown in).

Generally speaking, my work is primarily composed of and/or inspired by vintage, salvaged, and collected materials. I enjoy the process of finding materials and realizing the possibility of re-purposing them—reinventing use, intention, or aesthetic. I enjoy the transformation of one thing into something else entirely, becoming dissimilar or unexpected.

Much of my work consists of layered surfaces: bits and pieces from discarded books and magazines, handwritten letters and receipts, obsolete reference material, thrift store textiles, and mysterious random pieces. Order, association, and reverence emerges from the sorting, arranging, and placement of each accumulated piece into a whole.
