About

I love collecting old bits of stuff – cast-off tools, useless pieces of hardware, anything with type or numbers on it, old wood…. I like the imagined history of the objects, the quality materials and craftsmanship, the oddity of certain things. When inspiration hits, I reassemble things in a new way to make objects people can use again. I love the process, it gives me real joy. And it gives me an excuse for collecting things. If I didn’t make art with the things I collect, I might be considered a hoarder.
