“By picking up discarded objects, I am not only collecting fragments for future creations,
but I am also removing things that are often classified as litter. To me, these materials have much more personality and tell a truer story than mass-produced, sourced components. My desire to give the found objects a second life is how I keep my materials and practice sustainable.”
