I am a multimedia sculptor and printmaker working predominantly with discarded, destroyed, and found materials. My art practice is rooted in a deep and thoughtful exploration and evaluation of these materials and objects. All this is in the pursuit of seeing an object not just for what it is, or what it was, but everything that it can be. By keeping an object out of the waste stream, studying it to unlock its potential, and creating art that is both beautiful and functional, we can move towards a collective desire for sustainability in the future. The things which we discard today have the potential to become the raw materials of tomorrow. We need artists to get us to tomorrow.
