I make work from the materials that surround me. I rescue broken furniture, skin abandoned mattresses, collect worn-out clothing, and save all sorts of packaging. I shape these castoffs into artworks and objects that resonate with my own passage through time. My process is intuitive, slow, and rooted in non-linear exploration. It is a collaboration in which I listen and look more than I act or direct. Over time, this process stretches the materials and my understanding of them until neither they nor I can return to the shape we were before.
