Artist Statement

My constructions are made from a variety of found objects. These objects are individually selected for their unique color and shape, and are subsequently transformed into figures and portraits. The result is a work which contains comic characters full of wit and humor, while sometimes also embodying a macabre feeling.

I have taken my inspiration for these constructions from my observations of people who bring wonder and amazement to me. They may come from all walks of life and occupations. However, the common theme is that these people always remain true individualists no matter what the situation.
