Artist Statement

I use recycled, everyday materials, such as single-use plastic bags, to create objects with underlying social and emotional messages. This body of work, which is produced factory-style, plays on rampant consumerism and mass production, but it also touches on individuals. Thousands of hands have used, touched, and thrown away these bags. I recontextualize these past experiences, using my hands and touch to manipulate them into their final forms.
