My work is about ideas. In opposition to concrete statements, the work can be attributed to thoughts or suggestions and exist as proposals for consideration. Scale is ambiguous within my work; these pieces could exist at any size. That said my preference of scale is that of little things, a world of the minute, of discarded fragments of my day to day experience. In my work I value the quiet personal moments of the day in which I construct small works that simulate a place for wonder and contemplation.

As an artist I am a collector of objects as much as I am a maker of objects. I see myself as an archivist of a world of found objects. Collecting and reassembling objects to create new meaning and new possibilities. My practice engages a playful balance between: humour and formal issues; size and perception of scale; and longevity versus ephemerality; and how these relationships inform value of work.
