" ...I was nurtured in blue-collar neighborhood of skilled tradespeople and educated within a monastic community. For me, sculpture is the tool to weave these seemingly disparate, yet deep-seeded influences, into a cohesive practice. The atypical environment of an art student sharing overlapping and adjacent spaces with a contemplative community, sparked an inherent and mindful introspection, feeding the content of my work. I transform and elevate the humble and the modest by rescuing reclaim and celebrating the spiritual within the material. Perhaps my studio practice fits somewhere between Zen Wabi Sabi and the animated “Island of Misfit Toys”.
