My work is a sculptural realization of past lived experiences, which is partially responsible for the chaotic oeuvre. I have times of working in chocolate, cotton candy or found plastic and everything else. Work for me is about the process, the manipulation of a given material, and treating all these materials as temporary guests in my hands. The drive for me has always been the sacred found object, an object with its own history given to me to mold into another narrative. Eventually, we realize that our own body and self is also found object, given briefly so we too can write our own story.
