I use a wide variety of materials to create intricate and highly detailed sculptures and installations. Many of my pieces are made up of hundreds and often thousands of individually hand made components. Transforming and pushing conventional materials, such as liquid adhesives, glass, and plastics, beyond their intended purpose, is a consistent focus in my work. Discovering the potentials of a material and how it might enhance a specific message or idea is an integral part of my process. Current events, contradiction and collection, and the natural world are the influences that shape my work. With tiny details and subtle messages, I like to invite people to look past the obvious and engage them in close observation. Ideally, making a visual statement that will spark conversation and mark a social or political point in time. Sometimes, my pieces form organically. Other times, they are planned in advance and highly structured. I use these disparate methods and creative disciplines in order to make each piece a unique technical challenge. This also allows me to convey the beauty I feel variety can add to art and the everyday world.
