While I studying sculpture as an undergraduate,
I always asked myself,
‘Why am I trying to make this?’ before beginning my piece.
However, having a set reason blocked my creativity.
To remedy this, I started working from images that randomly came into my head and then asked,
‘Why did I make this?'

La femme à l'artichaut
Pablo Picasso (1881– 1973)
2005, The Monster Project was triggered by an article I read. The article conveyed the story of a woman in Philadelphia who put a monster up for auction on eBay.
The mother tried to relieve her daughter’s fear by selling the monster in the form of pictures her daughter had drawn along with her belongings in a shopping bag.
As the items had sold already, I needed another way to acquire monster pictures.
