"I am a maker of objects. Since I was young I’ve always had a desire to make things with my hands. It’s visceral and primitive and fundamental. If you ask me as an artist why I make something, I’ll tell you I had to do it – I couldn’t not do it. It is as necessary to me as breathing. Each piece I create is a part of me brought to life and given to the viewer. Whether deemed successful or not, I continue creating.""
