    It is more exciting and challenging to create beauty out of nothing or out of materials that are not usually considered beautiful. Left overs, rejects, scraps, found objects, everyday things, are all materials that can fall into the category of the unexpectedly beautiful. These materials can even be covered in dirt and grime, or they can be shiny, parts of plastic, glittery, metal things. What they all have in common is that they were manmade objects, once used, and now discarded. As consumers in a changing world we are constantly tempted with the newest and the latest, which blinds our ability to reuse and recycle the old. With these everyday materials, I find it most compelling to make art that references nature. Organic and geometric patterns are found everywhere in nature, from plants, to rocks, and even in our own bodies. I often make grid structures and repetitive patterns, set against organic shapes with natural movement, to show the strength and beauty of nature by artificial means. I hope to speak to the potential of re-use or the treasure in everyone’s trash. Read Less
