The basis of my work is my investigation of material. I gravitate toward common, everyday materials (paper towels, latex paints, apple skins), not the traditional materials of sculpture. I am interested in the process of discovering a material's unique identity and challenging its assumed limitations and functions. The humor in my work derives from the application of language. I play with definition and expectation when I unite material and form. I create opportunities to reconsider everyday matewrials, removing them from their mainstream destinies.
