My work has always been a product of what remains or is composed of things that are leftover. Things that are held onto or survive a period of time, things that are found or encountered seem to capture my attention. Everyday items have a history and a pause for wonder, not only in how they are made or why they exist, but why they seem to find their way into my life in the first place. We are a culture of things and things can be forgotten. Or they can be remembered and have another life altogether.
