I am a salvage-based artist. I find beauty in the old & abandoned and I search for these authentically ephemeral objects to use as the ingredients for my creations. To reclaim these 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 regard for their historical curio as I give them a second chance at life playing the roles of supporting cast members in my world of invented mixed media choreographies. My intimate artwork embraces the patina of age and the grace of imperfection.
