I am a salvage-based artist. I find beauty in the discarded and inspiration from the old & abandoned. My mixed media work is always a challenge, a grateful opportunity and a passionate calling. To use found and antiquated materials is an absolute privilege; for they are unique, one-of-a-kind ingredients serendipitously gifted to me as an artist. These materials are treated with respect, grace and complete appreciation for their historical significance. I give them a second chance at life playing the roles of supporting cast members in my artwork compositions.
