"As a self-taught assemblagist/sculptor, I create vibrant and provocative works of art from the products of mans throw-away culture. I search for commonplace discarded objects and discover unique resources containing collectibles and relics to utilize in the sculptures which then become part of a thematic series.
Like the objects I work with, my themes vary considerably, but the common thread of my work is the urgency of visual statements concerning American consumerism, environmental awareness, political icons, and the medias steady search for the newest sensation.
Though my work is serious in nature, with the infusion of color, texture, and content, it maintains a whimsical and seductive perspective on Western culture."
