I have always been a collector, of sorts, and found beauty and usefulness in discarded objects. I grew up in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and from a young age I began collecting random objects that may otherwise be thrown away.
Throughout college I expanded my passion for realistic art to much more expressive and abstract styles. I was able to combine these styles to form a kind of controlled chaos in my work. The use of discarded objects aid in this approach to represent an underlying meaning of beauty and importance; something seen as trash can be made interesting if given a new purpose. These objects also hold a certain point in time that could otherwise be forgotten.
Upon graduating, I moved to Denver, Colorado with my husband, along with my boxes of assorted findings to use in future artworks. I look forward to expanding upon the current themes and concepts in my work and discovering new inspirations as my experiences continue to change.
