My work speaks as both painting and sculpture. Trash and consumerism, a by- product of man’s mark on the environment, is destroying our environment. I salvage vinyl street banners before they are discarded in landfills and use the words, colors and imagery, as a powerful starting point in my process. I cut, slash, crunch, and weave the vinyl into three-dimensional objects. Through the action of deconstructing, I attempt to restructure and form material to reclaim and restore a healing presence through the work.
