“In all things I try to recognize the unlovely as the lovely disguised. As an artist, I seek to make something from what seems to be nothing: a discarded box, old clothing, broken glass, or reflector lights…the list is endless. What I love about working with found objects is that the seemingly useless becomes useful; discarded items breathe a new life. Sometimes I have a specific inspiration and sometimes I don’t- what’s critical is simply to begin. Color, texture and image become an expression of feeling, an outpouring of me and I begin to see the world through different eyes. What I have learned and love about creating is the inability to make a mistake. If I am willing to wait for the inspiration or the new idea every decision becomes something useful, positive, beautiful.”
