Anatomical prints, soil and sand, artificial food, bones, and old toys are some of the disparate objects I reconstitute into a sculpture that infuses the familiar with mystery. Collage and assemblage evoke disjointed narratives referencing History, Science, Literature, and the Arts. Humor and critique comingle in work that channels the vibrant wells of memory and dreams.
