About

I am a treasure hunter. I love to go to second hand stores, garage sales, and antique shops to see what speaks to me in terms of history, ephemera, or the unusual.  I trust my inner self in the items I collect, organize and store.  In my studio, I employ that same trust as I assemble my work. My recent work has taken a turn into construction and deconstruction as I build a narrative through antique photos of strangers with their personalities shining combined with scraps of wood, memories of time, bits of map and elements of measure.  Each piece tells it’s own strange and wonderful story and is a treasure map used to explore the realm of imagination.
