I find plastic objects and societal detritus and transform them into works of art. I enjoy using found objects because they come in many different colors, shapes and sizes. Cast off materials engages an audience at a very basic level. At first the audience sees the sculpture, then identifies the repurposed material seeing the same sculpture anew. Some of the materials that I use are plastic grocery bags, plastic bottle rings, plastic caps, bottles and snack food wrappers.
