ARTIST STATEMENT 

I currently work on site-specific installation, sculpture, and painting, inspired by my direct surroundings, Ethnographic cultures, and Art History. The majority of my materials are detritus, either synthetic or organic or the mélange of the two, where I strive to transform the typically disregarded and commonplace materials into something less ordinary.
