> DESCRIPTION
Artist Statement

Using books as three dimensional mediums, I re-invent their function from literary communicators into sculptural artifacts. Realizing a book's potential to be reinterpreted, I create unique one-of-a-kind art works. Addressing current issues such as gender bias, consumerism, global warming or religious dogma, impose those issues into books that have no apparent connection to them. The careful editing, cutting and removing of selections can result in a beautiful three dimensional collage. Reminding one that as technology advances and places emphases on speed and efficiency, the quality of prior experience can still be appreciated, as in the simple experience
of opening a book.
