“I started by painting used furniture and then realized I loved the pieces of the furniture better than painting so started using drawers and legs and creating assemblages. I love taking one found object and joining it up with another object(s). They come with their own story but create a whole new one once in a box or frame. I try not to use plastic or new items. I love working in themes and series...one piece seems to complete another. I love using found objects, educating people about art, especially assemblage. I create an assemblage that acts like a memory for people. They see an object that takes them back to a special place. Memories and objects live on.”
