Artist's Statement

Making assemblages keeps me happy.

I’m inspired by collecting detritus, old ephemera, rusty stuff and old games and toys. I love designing and arranging these artifacts to represent people, animals and abstract spaces. Old things have their own history which adds to the evocative story I’m telling. The colors, textures and worn qualities appeal to my aesthetics. 

Sometimes the results surprise me. Disturbing images emerge along with funny ones. I feel like a scientist studying evolution as my pieces grow and develop. Basically I make assemblage because it’s so much fun. I’ve been working in collage and assemblage since I was introduced to it at Rhode Island School of Design.

I am very excited about sharing my art with you.
