from Lost and Found
"My work explores human responses to the passage of time. As people, this response occurs simultaneously together and alone. Every day, each one of us decides where and how to use our time. Except it’s not ours. Time answers to no one. What most interests me is what time demands of us. Time moves like the tide in an unbroken cycle - beginning, end, repeat. The past pushes, the future pulls and the present hesitates. I use a multitude of sculptural materials to express these concepts, such as natural and synthetic found objects, handmade papers, and cast bronze."
