Scheming and concocting.
Unraveling and utilizing the seemingly obsolete.
Uncovering the want left in our waste.
As a byproduct of our consumption, we create material society deems ‘trash’. In our struggle and search for the disposable, convenient, and cheap, we neglect the big picture, the long-term. We produce, wear once, use once, look once, and toss. This trash becomes my palette.
My work is wearable, up-cycled, pragmatic. I create clothing, jewelry, and functioning objects: whatever can be imagined from whatever can be found.
My responsibility as a resourceful, imaginative mind becomes transfiguring of the easy-to-overlook into the lovely-to-look-at without compromising quality, durability or desirability.
I hope to prolong this exploration.
