"For over a decade, I have been using objects discarded by society in combination with my sculptural work to create new objects that explore the constant process of transformation and change in the cycle of birth, death and rebirth. My fascination for these abandoned objects has grown over the years leading me to question issues of permanence and decay, strength and vulnerability.

Karmic Energy; Rebooted is a series of new works that combine disparate objects to create a new form, one which still retains vestiges of its original identity while assuming new and different qualities; figurative, conceptual, and experiential. Thus these common found objects in their transformed state have a renewed energy and sensibility functioning physically as well as spiritually, reinforcing the idea of the sacredness of everyday life."
