A collector, beachcomber, hunter/gatherer...picker. I am a mixed media artist. Found objects have always spoken to me. Give me a piece of "something"...it will tell me what it wants to become..how it is to be adorned or transformed.
That said my creativity has been a part of my life always. The roads It takes are as varried as the things that intrest me.
Not only an artist...I am a seller of splendid small and lovely things. I am a collector of the same and use my collections in my work.
I love words and use them to punctuate my art and the moments of busy lives.
These things said I have been fortunate to have friends and family who add to my life.. vision and art.
To quote Oliver Goldsmith "I love everthing that is old: oldfriends,old times,old books,old manners, old wines."
I began this process as a way of organizing my piles of ribbon. Then I liked them! I am saving the board covers for art projects. I am hand coloring and tinting the ribbons. Ribbon is kind of an OBSESSION with me.
