"I am a mixed media sculptor who combines atypical imagery into new hybrid sculptures to explore cultural contexts between generations of people.

I use vintage toy and ‘folk art’ aesthetics combined with rough construction as a way to talk about the passing down of cultural values from one generation to the next. At first, my sculpture may look foreign and strange but my craftsmanship and attention to detail capture and hold the interest of the viewer. I use this technique to entice the viewer to look deeper at the work allowing for reflection on greater issues in our society and question what we believe about ourselves."
