Juicy, plastic bottle tops, zip ties, and other found objects Dimensions Variable 2006


The material choices that I have made are directly related to my commitment to environmental issues and the modern culture. I want people to look at the world they live in, and see the beauty that goes unnoticed. I create art that asks the viewer to reconsider the objects of everyday life.

My work is currently constructed of found and discarded materials. I save these objects from their fate of the landfill and raise them to a higher status by making them into art.
