Artist statement

 

I work mainly in mixed media: found-object assemblage, collage,

and art journals.

 

Many of my assemblage pieces are kinetic and interactive, inviting

the audience to share my creative process of discovery by opening

up new dimensions. 

 

I repurpose everyday objects to convey a sense of surprise at beauty hidden in plain sight. My art is influenced by childhood, motherhood, and my previous career as a teacher of literature. Much of my inspiration comes from the materials themselves, and the exploration of texture, color, and scale that they suggest.

 

My work investigates the line between trash and treasure, art and craft, child and adult, inside and outside, the hidden and the revealed.
