A constant thread that runs through my work is creating the bizarre for my own amusement. There’s often a point during the making process that makes me laugh out loud. The laughter may be due to the piece being thoroughly ridiculous, or uncomfortably strange. Either way at this point I know that the work has found itself and a place in my world.
