About Me - Artist Statement


My passion for working with metal and mechanical objects has been crucial in the evolution of my art and freeing my imagination. It provides me an avenue to express myself in a way that both helps me and the environment. The metal has the ability to resonate the very fantasies and thought processes that I envision.
I create my works using found objects from typewriters, adding machines, old computers and technology. I take the items people no longer have use for and that would normally end up in a landfill and in-turn create something new and upcycled. My mission is to create dialogue and help find creative ways of dealing with this discarded tech in an environmentally sound way.
