Both my digital work and my entry into larger assembled pieces reflect the aspect of my personality that loves to experiment and answer the questions, “What if?” In the digital world, one can be fearless in what one attempts to do because changes can be quickly and easily made without impacting the original piece. interactions are fluid and immediate. Additionally, the digital universe encourages experimentation with the result that a piece can be transformed in unexpected ways.

In the physical world of assemblage, answering the question “What if?” is a completely different process. It’s slower because you’re attempting to create a physical representation of something specific that you want to express. Materials, and for some pieces, how the materials are sourced and very important. The process of expressing your thoughts and emotions is labor intensive as either the materials or one’s execution of them fall short. Getting to the endpoint of a piece can take weeks.
