I come from a metalsmithing background. For the last several years my work is primarily collage and assemblage in both two and three-dimensional forms. I work with a variety of media, usually what is most immediately at hand and what surrounds my everyday life, paper, found cardboard, plastics, metals, objects, and most recently reclaimed wood from the craftsmen bungalows being torn down in my neighborhood.
In 2011 I was awarded a scholarship for a seminar course about and to study with Venezuelan artist, Carlos Cruz-Diez during his retrospective at MFAH. His ideas on art as experience have influenced my work. Many of my pieces are interactive with the viewer and change visually depending upon from where they are viewed.
I have broad interests and my work often revolves around what is of concern to me at any given time.
