Artist Statement

For the last twelve years I have been working as a professional artist constructing innovative industrial sculptures from found objects. The recurrent theme in my sculptural work is pushing through to overcome struggle; and I seek to inspire strength through the narratives I depict. The subjective nature of my work is driven by universally relevant experiences and materials that are commonplace.”
