Artist Statement

 

Humanity is a bond created through shared experiences.

From the thrills of life to the mundane, we experience a wide spectrum of encounters.

What makes us unique is the way in which we process those moments.

For me, finding allure in an unassuming object—bits of lint from strangers’ laundry, orphaned gloves on the street, stray hair caught in a drain—is an invitation to recognize the sacred in the every day.

In my work, the ritual of collection is a practice of instinct.

Repetition and contemplation allows the ordinary to become extraordinary.
