I combine basic tendencies of collecting and arranging with textile construction processes that showcase human ingenuity to transform salvaged everyday objects and materials into densely worked sculptural forms. My studio practice prioritizes instinctual and intuitive knowledge operating into the art impulse from the inside out.

I create things that side step easy categorization, blurring distinctions between abstraction and representation, objecthood and installation, form and surface. What is ordinary becomes mysterious and out of undervalued parts comes an indelible whole.
