Artist's Statement

I make art not by creating something new, but by reorganizing what’s already there. My process is resourceful, responsive, and playful. I spend as much time
exploring and researching as I do making. I respond to my immediate surroundings, especially to found materials, so my work is often tactile and
textured. Each material has unique formal properties, as well as historical, cultural, and environmental resonances.

My site and community based work keeps me grounded; I enjoy the challenges of working with and for a diverse audience. When making work for gallery settings, I enjoy greater focus and control.
