This body of work uses old, forgotten, abandoned or worn materials and transmutes them into something new. My goal is to inspire others to see beauty in the ordinary and to notice that new possibilities exist all around us. Born out of my own experiences with change and transformation this artwork is a metaphor for these possibilities. Change is a delicate process and these pieces express the need for balance through themes of light and dark, hard and soft. Pieces here transform objects (bike gears) used to power small machines into an object from the natural world known for its beauty, delicacy and softness: the flower.
