My work evokes nostalgia and reminds you of a joyful past. Combining the old with the new, it directs your attention to long forgotten beauty now slated for the landfill. My mission is to preserve and rescue and to leave a legacy of beauty revived. Through the repurpose of broken and discarded materials, I challenge the viewer to focus on the details and in doing so reassign their value to art.
