Artists Statement:

Although my art is quite eclectic, it has one consistent theme which I choose to call “Deconstruction”. It is an approach that draws inspiration from post-modernism, surrealism, abstract expressionism, automatism, and dadaism, but always involves a breaking down — or disassembly — of artistic materials and one usually involving the connotative meanings of the found objects used. The transformation from “Found Object” to “Art Object” is the creative process. What once were computer chips become the scales of a lizard, what once were ordinary nails are transformed into a mannequin’s hair, and an old rusted rake-head gets metamorphosed into the mount for a sculptural work.
