My assemblage projects provoke strong responses, perhaps because the viewers make personal emotional, social, philosophical, and political associations with the once mundane objects. My main interest is in juxtaposing divergent objects and using surface alteration to create sculptures, and to observe how this process (and product) changes thought about both substrate and coating as well as how we interact with the new third object.
