About

The use of the discarded and the found lends itself to a good story.

At first when I considered collaborating with other people’s used up and thrown out traces, I was overwhelmed with all the junk, all the stuff discarded. Actually I’m amazed that all of this was coveted, purchased then thrown away.

Allowing myself to wander aimlessly, exploring the edges of the rubbish piles, I came to see it as an immense amount of fabulous raw materials for my sculpture.

Who used this stuff?
The details of people's lives got dumped. While stories spin in my head of who they were, I want to try and give new life to someone's old things, folding them into my ideas of the wild, the open and the uninhabited.

Since we are intimately connected to place, combining these manmade objects with the ideas of habitat preservation makes me question and examine the community of the environment and our place in it.

    Bought an old homestead with four old, trashed homes, piles of junk with majestic views of 14,000 ft mtns. Inspired by my surroundings, I try to give new life to someone's old things, folding them into my ideas of the wild, the open, the uninhabited.
