It is the pairing of things unexpected that runs throughout my work; the combination of something that is a bit awkward or unnatural with something that is familiar and comforting.

My subject matter has often been an exploration of combinations that seemingly do not belong together. By manipulating and playing with the parts, I can take a familiar object and change its meaning, have it serve another purpose, or give it a new identity. I control the outcome and decide what’s beautiful.
