As an artist, I am always looking for objects and containers that i can alter or embellish. Boxes and containers, especially birdcages, are very special to me.
My assemblages have a story to tell. They can also be enjoyed on many levels as I create pieces that contain humor and recognizable objects.
Most of the materials used in my assemblages and mixed media pieces are images, paper and objects I have collected throughout the years. I especially like to use Barbie dolls and parts of Barbie in my artwork. Textures excites me and I try to incorporate them in all my work.
A great many of the ideas for my art pieces begin with a word, a phrase or something said to me which becomes the theme as well as the title. I love using numbers and words to express the feeling of a specific piece. I also pull together many collage images to enhance my backgrounds.
