Statement

I make art not by creating something completely new, but by reorganizing what is already there. My process is resourceful, responsive, curious, and playful. I respond to my immediate surroundings, especially to found materials. I treat found materials as artifacts to be learned from. For this reason, my work is often tactile and immediate, with a sensitivity to texture. Each material has its own formal properties, as well as historical, cultural, and environmental resonances. I spend as much time exploring and researching as I do making.

My site and community based work keeps me grounded; I appreciate the challenges of learning from and communicating with a diverse audience. When making work for a gallery setting, I enjoy greater control and freedom. I make room in my practice for both ways of working and showing.
