Lizz Godfroy's Profile
I have always been a scavenger of sorts, constantly collecting even the most unassuming nostalgic treasures, ephemera, the things left behind, objects with history and stories from the past. I then reinvent and re-purpose those artifacts. I take vintage eyeglass lenses, skeleton keys, bullet casings, press blocks, typewriter keys, clock gears, pocket watch innards and the like & transform them into unique jewelry + accessories...i try to make something beautiful and exciting out of discarded bits of life. My paintings & collages reflect this need to salvage as well, mixing paper and paint, text and textures to create a story, a puzzle or simply evoke emotion.
