-I often find that the world does not make very much sense sometimes, but it is still beautiful in its imperfections. I like to find the hidden interest and beauty in mundane things, seeing them in a new light. I like to keep my perspectives fresh and try to use materials in a new or experimental way. I hope that the viewer responds to my work with a smile and curiosity.
