My work embodies total creative freedom. Art-making means permission to be, without judgment or societal conventions- to laugh at life, the good, the messy, the ugly. I sum up the working process as being out of the closet.
If there are rules in art, they are meant to be broken. I work intuitively; there is no plan. The unconscious unfolds and dictates. The images are like a bizarre dream, a carnival pulled from memory and my perverse sense of humor.
Detritus is my source both materially and conceptually. Duct tape, hair balls, bits of string and cardboard, gum wrappers, cartoon characters, create a domino effect of chaos and freedom.
