My process is usually a combination of self-discovery and universal conflict. I primarily create sculptural installations, performance and wearable art. I often combine mediums or make them interactive. I enjoy the challenge of using materials not commonly thought of as an artistic medium, using common objects or ideas in a new fashion. I use humor, irony, bright colors and odd materials to lure in my audience with a hidden message as the piece progresses. The message does not have to be apparent and can have more than one meaning and layer. I often use personal experiences or observations about the realm of good and bad human behavior, and display them as a spectacle in another fashion to reveal the ironic choices we often make.

Since I often blur the lines between the mediums, please realize when reviewing my portfolio that although I have placed the photo in one category, it could have easily been placed under another one.
