Artist's Statement

I have a passion for all the discarded things and am even a compulsive hoarder. What seems unappealing or quirky to others is inspiration to me. I look for my object of beauty at unlikely places in waste bins and garbage dumps and transform the objects of my fancy into three-dimensional figurines. I love turning the everyday objects into interesting things. This is also my way to conserve nature by recycling metal.
