The materials I use tell a story: they have been places, the wear and tear make them valuable to me. I revive the materials and give them hope.I make the fragile strong by mending discarded remnants into vast assemblages that present the history of many who have been forgotten. I unify all the different surfaces that resemble scars and hurts from their past. I see its light. I see a new beginning, I heal through the process by transforming what already exists into what I feel it needs to become, and assemble a whole new puzzle: one that is multidimensional, multi textured and one that combines old, new, extraordinary, and mundane.
