Found Object Sculpture
There is always an inspiration to breathe new life into old found objects from the past. Regardless of the age or value of the material, using it to create a piece of assemblage artwork gives the potential to ignite a new appreciation for it.
My inspiration began from a treasure trove of photographs, ephemera, and antiques inherited from my family. It now comes from virtually anything that crosses my path during visits to antique stores, strolls through the woods, or simply rummaging through an old box that holds the possibility of a forgotten piece of history.
I bring a passion for design, collage, assemblage, antique ephemera, vintage photographs and found objects to my work. Usually the piece is inspired by one component, and the rest of the piece comes together as I add additional vintage found objects. Some pieces have a more personal meaning to me and some are just whimsical and inspired by joining some random salvaged items together in a new and interesting way.
