artist’s statement

I typically express my creativity in 3-D form, usually a mixed media assemblage, mosaic, or jewelry. Finished items are given as unique gifts, adorn my office or home, sold at Art Fairs, or temporarily hung in local galleries.

Most of the results would be considered Folk Art style as I am self taught (except for a few classes and workshops along the way), and use materials that are available in my everyday life. Sometimes it is used items, such as rusted pieces of metal found in the street, etc. and it will become “up-cycled and repurposed”.

A deeper meaning in life can be the driving force as the creative process has many layers & it provides time for contemplating life.
