I am a mixed media assemblage artist primarily working with found objects, reclaimed materials, and encaustic. I am continually inspired by the overlooked beauty created by the passing of time – erosion, patina, rust, and scars. My artwork is filled with vintage found objects, salvaged cast-offs, and forgotten artifacts that tell a story of a life gone by. The weathered characteristics of these objects are the foundation for my assemblage art.
I often highlight the basic form, shape, and color of these raw materials. I look at these objects through an unconventional lens instead of seeing them solely for their intended use. My work provides a unique commentary on the reinvented purpose of common, found, and discarded materials.
