Second life

"I find discarded objects from peoples’ houses and give them a second life, a new home. My goal is for each object to transcend its origins by being integrated into an animal form that seems alive. It is a way for me to contemplate and remind myself that even if there is conflict right now, there is a way for all the pieces to fit together. That even if some people don’t feel at home here and now, there is a place where they belong and that they will eventually find it."
"When you look at the piece from the distance you see the form of the horse galloping, but when you get up close you start to see the individual objects that were used."
