Making art is the most joyous activity I participate in. I am committed to using ‘junk’ to make art. Give me something that would otherwise be thrown away and I will make something interesting to look at. Not all art is meant to simply be beautiful. Some art is created to challenge our thinking and change our perceptions. When I view the finished piece, I am able to see the whole as being something other than the parts that were once junk. For me it’s about layers and union.
