My artwork enhances the ordinary and celebrates the history imbued in found objects. It is intimate, familiar, and occasionally quite humorous. It lives in the space between a precious and finely crafted reliquary and a souvenir of life. It tells the story of an event or moment in time by presenting the overlooked remnants left behind. With a focus on a high level of craftsmanship and a reverence for my materials, my work is as much about the history of these artifacts as much as it is about my personal history, my life, and my relationship with them.
