I am intensely drawn to the hunt for those rusty, forgotten treasures of old. These are treasures that speak of a different time and place when things were well made and durable too, because each piece had a definite purpose to fulfill. Then...one day, their purpose waned because something bigger, better, brighter or more beautiful came along. And as the clock ticked the minutes away these treasures gathered dust. As the clock tocked the hours away these treasures were discarded. As the clock chimed the days away these treasures were forgotten.
Ah....but their stories...their stories...they live on...
Above all, I fancy myself a storyteller. As an artist, I use my imagination to create stories. These stories appear in my art dolls (www.amesdouces.com), my paintings, collages and all the other forms of art I enjoy creating…
