  • ARTIST STATEMENT

    In my work, I am drawn to the use of repetition and fascinated by the power of multiples. If multiplied enough times and displayed in the right manner, a small object may be elevated to a monumental status. That kind of power is beautiful and overwhelming. It’s the same with people. One who stands alone may be weak, but the more who join them, the stronger they all become.
