People, bright colors, and details are the inspiration for most of my pieces. The purpose with my art is to allow viewers to see something from their own perspective and to be able to transmit beauty and imagination through my artwork. I am always looking to inspire people to be creative and to look for those things that feed the soul.

These works began with found materials from a certain collective of lofts and arts spaces that had an abundance of "old growth" scrap and detritus accumulated from years of creative folks living their lives, getting free cool stuff not just from alleys but also movie sets and museums and conventions.
By repurposing and recombining such elements, creative and pleasing juxtapositions are created, which bring together their disparate histories and origins.
