I adore the chance encounter and surprise of the found, unfamiliar and strange. I am fascinated with things that are seemingly out of place yet integrated into a larger environment, akin to candy-frosted rocks bordering a sidewalk. Basking in the resonance of the everyday, I appreciate the brevity, humour, and nostalgia in thingly representations. Through paint and assorted materials, I toy with the subjectivity of the traditional and the absurd; the preconceived and the ridiculous; also, the understood and ambiguous. I create artifacts and occurrences that mirror diverse structures and quirks to which selves, nature and cultures operate; and also transcend.
