ARTIST STATEMENT

In my work the materials and objects I use include, wire, found objects, recycled newspaper, encaustic, dyed canvas, computer components, duct tape, various other available materials. These materials can or cannot, when they are cojoined with other media, make up an important part of the piece I am working on. The tactile, sensual quality of the materials and the physical processes of forming them become the foundation and meaning of my work. In using a variety of materials I am free to explore unlimited artistic boundries. The path I have chosen to follow is never dull but daring and exciting.
