"A child’s untamed imagination can create a new and exciting world out of a single object. The combination of an incorrupt point of view, strong imagination, overflowing curiosity, and the desire to push boundaries make for a very special environment exclusive to the child and their playmates. In the adult world, our formerly infinite imagination is restrained by arrangements and circumstances. As we grow up, society puts limits on the way an individual might perceive things. Inspired by the perspective of children, I seek a sort of regression to a childlike state of mind so that I can create in a place beyond these boundaries. By merging the instinctive, darker emotions that dwell inside adults with the child’s imaginary world, my sculptures make the viewer uncomfortable with their expectations as they reflect on their own grownup life stories."
