My work is a direct reflection of my life and experience. Artworks evolve from contemplating contemporary life and recognizing a rapid loss of elements from within my personal past. Abandoned and then found, these elements are collected and captured in a brushstroke, a snapshot, a stitch and a tale.
Concepts stemming from daily domesticity are my inspiration; games, gardens, diaries, woman’s work, home and the working man. Traditional and alternative media are explored and pursued in a quest to express visually my ideals. Story telling is the thick red thread seaming the artworks together.
“Junkyard Essays” is an ongoing multi media project incorporating snapshots and stories from a salvage yard in New Jersey. This work continues to expand, as a collection of life’s accidents and the paths that people chose.
