Read about my second nature...
As an artist I have always felt compelled to make use of my superfluities. In 2000, I began a series of work using scraps of eliminated items from the process of making art. These same items were then reintroduced into the process from which they were eliminated. Since then the series has grown into utilizing whatever scrap deemed appropriate. While my primary focus still concerns discarded art, it is now mixed with other donations from patrons. The combined result creates objects that are aesthetically pleasing or whimsical commentary. The limitations of the material and circumstances from which it came have always been a source of interest. These two elements serve as inspiration when developing a piece. The use of discarded material has always been second nature to me, whether it is in art or in life. It only seemed fitting to join my second nature with my art.
