My work is simple yet meticulously complex. I choose familiar objects like pencils, crayons, markers, paper, and books and examine their common use and social significance. I then explore means of augmentation to infuse a meticulous consequence into the finished sculptures. Often intimate and fragile, the works reflect socially and psychologically revealing constructs. They consider conditions of isolation, interconnectivity, and vulnerability.
