At some point in while in school I stopped taking many notes and started to rely more on my memory. It gave me more time to draw in class, but also helped me focus on what I was hearing. A lot of my art now comes from memories and random thoughts that I was able to hold on to. Any ideas that are lost or forgotten only help to narrow my focus. Its often the simple ideas and first impressions that make it to the end of the creative process.

I use a wide range of materials including wood, apoxie clay, concrete, cardboard, household and found objects. The materials often play a big part in the direction of the art, sometimes the right object can be the missing puzzle piece that finishes the art.
