I used to keep little treasures in my slant top desk when I was a kid. I liked all sorts of little things and was very organized and meticulous. Often, I had lots of one item and didn't know back then that I liked multiples. Maybe it was because I grew up as a outsider.
I was born in a refugee camp and emigrated with my parents as a little girl. Anything I owned was a precious thing and as I grew up I felt compelled to collect unusual items. I still make and collect things, but as an adult I've gotten a little more sophistticated with my own artwork and my myriad collections. My treasures cross over into my artwork and back again and sometimes lead me down a path I don't even know is there til I'm standing in the middle.
I am a mixed media artist living and working in Northern California. I grew up in the Midwest and had a complete life…
