BIRDS SOAR OVER THE LINES TOPOGRAPHERS DRAW ON MAPS. THERE ARE NO BORDERS IN THEIR SKIES OR IN MY STUDIO. MY PHYSICAL WORK ECHOES THE MIGRATION PROCESS. I USE RECLAIMED MATERIALS IN MY WORK THAT I AM DRAWN TO BECAUSE OF SHAPE, FORM, COLOR, OR SIMPLY BECAUSE SOMEONE HAS THROWN THEM AWAY. SEPARATELY THEY ARE OBJECTS SORTED INTO BINS. TOGETHER, I MARRY THE FOUND AND CAST OFF ITEMS, CREATING MIXED MEDIA WALL SCULPTURES; ANGEL FIGURES VESTED WITH STORIES AND DIFFERENT LIVES. I AM A MIXED MEDIA ARTIST WORKING ON BOTH LARGE AND SMALL SCALE PROJECTS.
My husband, Jeff, is the other half of my team and helps with installations and trouble shooting material challenges. He also gets me out of my studio to take time to play.
I spend my free time in the mountains or on the water and am inspired by the beauty that surrounds me. I am grateful to live in a place that is teaming with opportunities to play outside. The time I spend playing feeds my creative energy.
I am fortunate to have an amazing husband and son. They have been an important part of my journey as an artist; hauling my work, traveling to shows, helping me with installations and surrounding me with love and support.
