ARTIST STATEMENT

The art that I create using objects that have been discarded and repurposed represents a re-evaluation of the life cycle of everyday items in a throwaway society. I have discovered that the transformation of outdated, rusty, or broken objects is a metaphor for personal renewal and boundless possibilities.
