About

If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud....

I vividly remember whiling away a whole afternoon sitting on the floor at my grandma's house going though each drawer of her antique sewing cabinet, pulling out treasures: jewelry, old books, photos and tiny trinkets from days gone by. This curiosity and obsession with anything old has continued all through my life and plays an important part in my art making.

Throughout my life, I have been both a collector and an artist. My assemblage work combines both of these passions. The auction business that my family owned for 17 years fueled my love of anything old, damaged or forgotten. I JUST HAD TO GIVE THESE ITEMS A HOME! I now live for trips to flea markets, garage sales, estate sales and even, the Dumpster, if it holds a great "treasure." The assemblage process is a quest to put all of these treasures together to tell a story.

In my assemblages, these found objects are combined with paint, wood or other elements to become a cohesive whole. The treasures themselves serve different purposes; it could be the shape, color or texture that wants to steal the show. When I start a new piece, I never know how the story will end. Depending on my mood, anything can emerge: my passion for the environment, our culture or something more serious and dark.

I have been an artist all my life but feel that it wasn't until I started this assemblage journey over 20 years ago, that I finally found my artistic voice!
