Artist Statement
My current oeuvre evolves from a progression of previous work in collage, assemblage, printing, wood and plaster sculpture, and fiber structure.  Through diverse media I continue to develop a dialog with the ambiguity of time and place perceptions as well as that of matter and material. Historic /geographic /culture-based premises are reconsidered and recontextualized.

I reclaim and redefine found, industrial, and prosaic components into forms that challenge their identity. Myriad references inform my work, increasingly realized through text and implied text. My perspective drives this pursuit, restructuring and revising the content and intent of objects, materials, words, and images.

Media
Sculpture, collage, assemblage
