I use the ordinary to create the unexpected. I am a builder who uses a variety of materials and processes with an affinity for working with found objects as units of fabrication. The themes explored in my work, although personal in origin, speak to the human condition, including identity and the complexities of interpersonal relationships. There is nothing exceptional about home, marriage and family, so I find it natural as I visually explore the dynamics of human relationships and everyday lives, to incorporate ordinary everyday objects. I am influenced by surrealist imagery and my manipulation of materials strives to reflect the idiom “things are not always what they seem”. Through this narrative work I invite the viewer to consider serious content by employing humor and exaggeration.
