My three-dimensional mixed media constructions are made from recycled, reclaimed, reconstructed "stuff" using a variety of techniques and materials. All my artwork is made primarily from found objects, those things most of us already have as opposed to things we purchase. This way of making art helps the environment and also challenges us to look at everyday objects and see their artistic potential. My aim is to help viewers stand in a new place - to help them realize that things they see every day and consider disposable, as trash, can become something valuable, unusual and beautiful - can become art. This all began with a mop: something every woman has and uses without thinking about it.
