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.

I create things that side step easy categorization inspired by structures of play. My art operates within the blur where distinctions between abstraction and representation, objecthood and installation, form and surface, craft and design are hard to make out. What is ordinary becomes mysterious and out of undervalued parts comes an indelible whole.
