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 took a walk this morning...the choice to power walk stop and smell the lilacs. it amazes me how lilacs are almost invisible until SPRING. It also amazes me how much fun it is to walk and see other gardens,when I spend so much time in mine. Lesson learned...I don't have to power walk and I don't have to pick weeds in other's gardens. I can just admire!!!
