Artist Statement

My art is a creative journey into the extraordinary, a playful exploration of wonder using materials drawn from the most unlikely places. I find inspiration in the rich biodiversity of dense ecosystems like coral reefs and rainforests, emulating their color and complexity in each piece I create.

Working primarily with partially upcycled materials, I craft intuitively and swiftly. This process breathes new life into found objects, transforming them into pieces that teem with unique, organic energy. Each transformed object narrates a story of renewal, a theme that parallels my own journey from illness to creative flourishing.

Often described as “delicious,” my mixed media pieces tantalize the senses with their visual and tactile richness. This compliment captures my goal perfectly: to create works so vibrant and detailed that viewers might wish to consume them entirely.

My art celebrates the transformative power of creativity, the unexpected beauty in discarded materials, and the joy sparked by an immersive escape from the ordinary. With each piece, I aim to offer a glimpse into my Wonderland, a world where fun is the guiding principle and imagination is boundless.
