I am interested in symbols, both archetypal and personal as from dreams and synchronicity; and an avid champion of the ‘discarded’ object.. tearing down of the old and rebuilding and integrating with the new. This has even found it’s way as I use my own and other’s discarded artworks! I use a wide variety of media including acrylic, oil, watercolor, collage/assemblage, sculpture, embedding and jewelry design including “caged brooches” (A Victorian-era technique.) Drawings made from life are the life-blood and basis for most of my artwork; having discovered quite early that my hand could easily replicate that which came across my vision. This gave me the confidence to make an early decision that art could be my life’s work; while being forever grateful for family members and friends encouragement along the way.
