I have enjoyed many forms of art. I began working in clay around 25 years ago and created hand built sculptures. I also occasionally paint and write, but my passion is assemblage art which I have been doing for the past several years. I love the thrill of the hunt for strange and unusual objects to use in my pieces.
My art represents a past of childhood abuse, addiction, and a life long struggle with mental illness. Trying to put things together over time, piece by piece with much thought and reflection until each piece fits precisely where I want it. It is much easier in art than in life. Art and life are one and the same to me. I hide things in my pieces as things about myself are still hidden in me, hopefully to be discovered. Putting a piece together takes a lot of time, just like putting a life back together. My time is spent searching for all those pieces in art and in life.
