pathetic, absurd, antiquated, banal or even garbage are words that best describe the objects i am drawn to. these types of objects hold my attention because of the stories they can tell and what they can mean. many times i find objects at thrift stores, yard sales or the side of the road. i am collector, picker and poet that sculpts, forms, designs and constructs sculptures with sense of purpose, priority, and preciousness. i want people to see the beauty and narrative that is held within simple overlooked objects.
