I make things that are designed to tap into something deeper within. Guiding principles include the space it will live, the experience to convey and the appropriate/available materials. Whenever possible, I use salvaged materials to prevent them from filling landfills and because I enjoy the challenge of completely reinventing them in unexpected ways. I utilize numerous artistic techniques to tell these tactile stories and I tell them in very different ways than what people are used to seeing. I am frequently inspired to learn new artistic techniques or collaborate with others in order to convey a certain message through my work. I welcome creative challenges of all sizes. I am presently researching how materials and minerals carry energy signatures believed to act as amplifiers of our intentions for healing, attraction and a wholistic perspective.
