Artist Statement

My work, which derives from my memories and experiences, re-creates a positive perspective. People have happy and unhappy memories, but we too easily forget the good and remember only the negative. In my opinion, we should be more optimistic—life is beautiful, not miserable. I want to create fun and simple sculptures that people can relate to and that help them to appreciate and enjoy their sweetest memories.
