Imagination is much needed today. For me, that means creating something that doesn’t already exist in our “logical” world. It means trusting intuition, the unconscious, and what feels “right”– working from inner necessity rather than by a plan. I want my work to encourage a slower pace, refer to a time past in which objects were cherished and made with care, and remind viewers to rely on their senses. Through trial and error, I combine objects to create a language and build meaning. For the artwork to really come “alive” each object speaks of what it once was, yet at the same time becomes something new and unexpected. Through my work I hope to stimulate the imagination and open minds and eyes to the beauty of transformation.
If objects can change – then so can we!
