The found materials in my work tend to be donations by others, leaving little say over my creative materials. These items of diminished pragmatic value, yet given sentimental worth, the donator commissions me with preservation of these donated items qualities, through incorporation into works.
Each work is an effort to engage in a conversation about gluttony. To question the idea of need, and want, and the shallow reward of consumption as a way of life. Unsustainable practices, mixed with sentimental attachment, helps create narratives that dashes the whimsy of nostalgia, against the rocks of a planet filling up with more.
