“For as long as I remember, Iʼve been obsessed with humanityʼs throw-away society. My everyday life is not burdened by the tasks of recycling, composting and reusing...I enjoy knowing my footprint is small. That said, I still can do more and continue finding ways to express my concerns with the environment. When it comes to my artwork which is made from 90% - 95% reclaimed materials, I walk the talk by producing art in the manner that I live.”
