I tell Stories with STUFF.
Form and Function combine with Reality and Myth, linking the technical expertise of a Craftsperson,
the aesthetic and philosophical explorations of an Artist, and the wit and whimsy of a Story Teller.
Let me tell your Stories!
Utilizing a wide variety of found, altered, and created objects and materials to celebrate events,
I interpret themes simply to tell Stories, both real or of my imagining.
My diverse technical background in a wide variety of artistic mediums, my inherent eye for colour, texture, and balance are showcased in this marriage of materials.
This portfolio is a cross section of my styles of mixed media assemblage.
Some pieces use entirely "as found" materials, from the base or box, to the objects mounted on or within.
Others are created with found objects mounted atop my original photographs of found textures.
Some are very definitely visual Stories, with intended themes or messages; poetic and thoughtful, ribald or
punful (that's a word, right?), interpretations of song lyrics or literary references.
Others are simply groupings of objects I feel are visually pleasing...think of them as 3D abstract paintings.
The work ranges from small scale including jewellery and wall pieces that have removable wearable elements (usually brooches); free-standing clockworks, lamps; and large scale wall pieces suited for mantlepieces or
