My work is immersive installations composed of mundane readily available household materials including clothing, textile, cardboard, packing material, string, wire and odd bits of paper. Old flapper dress beads, a gingham sleeve of a doll’s dress, a lace collar of an infant gown; found, used, and discarded, they retain a human imprint. The process of collecting remnants of domestic detritus is akin to foraging, as I gather, assemble, cut, puncture and mend. The surviving traces become ethereal objects of persistence, endurance and perseverance. Fragile materials become durable forms.

My sculptures and installations utilize a repurposing ecology; the discarded, prosaic and unremarkable are saved and reused. The unexceptional is marked and featured, a visceral encounter with the overlooked, the unseen, the intimate interior.
