Art Statement

Every time I find poetic potential in a discarded object, it becomes my purpose. Living in the industrialized world, surrounded by an excessive amount of objects together with the media, I find fulfillment in the creation of characters built from various objects that were previously resting without purpose. Looking out for similarities between objects is one of my greatest passions, striving to interpret thoughts. I feel the need to intervene within these forgotten elements, to work with their poetic potential to create convergence  that engage people with a message. A never ending search for beauty, making use of the detritus of everyday life.
