Artist Statement

If you find that my work evokes feelings of joy or excitement or sparks curiosity, then I have succeeded as an artist. But what is art if not a message from the cosmos?

My journey as a serious artist began with a heap of materials that were destined for the landfill, and I thought to myself, “what a waste!” I thought, perhaps I could put these objects to better use for myself and others. Perhaps I could create something striking with them to set in motion positive thoughts, feelings and actions. After all, if I believe in reducing, reusing and recycling, then I should salvage, repurpose and upcycle things as well.

My philosophy is that art should not only be beautiful, but also constructive and in a responsible way.
