The work I produce is a conscious amalgam of a number of interests I have and an attempt to reconcile these collective interests in a contemporary way. It is also an attempt on my part to produce work that is easy to use and live with and yet will provide visual stimulation, aesthetic pleasure and encourage a conceptual linking to life’s past.
The materials I use speak about life and times past through compositional, visual and tactile aspects such as color, grain, pattern and texture. I see my work as art of today speaking as artifact of tomorrow, referencing historic times through both function and visual stimulation.
