Artist Statement

I consider utility, decoration, color, and spatial relationships when I choose and combine media and materials. I am drawn to the commonplace, banal, and normally overlooked. Using my experience in cabinetmaking and fine woodworking, I seek to transform these simple materials into significant objects with an unexpected presence. My work addresses histories of collecting and displaying objects, with the display itself sometimes becoming the object of observation.
