My process starts with the box – or the central element – and around this, everything is built. I begin to form a world within this frame, based upon composition, iconic symbolism, scale, color, and material.

Sorting through my arsenal of treasures – mined primarily from flea markets, estate sales, and antique stores – I decide which objects I want to use, always searching for an emotional connection between myself and these materials.

As I begin to position objects together – adding and subtracting – I move forward, never feeling satisfied until I’ve reached what I feel is a visual absolute. The merging of my personal feelings with the alchemy of textures, color, and materials is key.

It’s rare that a piece is meticulously planned; it’s a very spontaneous process. Though these pieces are outwardly an assembly of visual elements, the work’s origin stems from my intuition and emotions.
