Artist Statement 

The focus of my work shifts between the environment and the personal investigation of place and identity. I want to draw connections to the environment and my cultural background. My sculptures transform discarded materials into organic forms. My work incorporates manufactured materials such as bottle caps, zip ties, water bottles, plastic packaging, plastic straws, fishing line. The size range of my work varies from the height of a chair to the size of a tennis court or room for large scale installations. The smaller size works vary between wall installation and free standing on a pedestal. The larger range works are mostly free standing, can also be installed on the wall. I explore ways to engage with single-use plastics, plant leaves, tree leaves from fruiting trees or remedial plants from my surrounding environment. I experiment with textiles, landscape, mass-produced plastic material through weaving and photographic image transfers.
