I create mixed media figurative constructions incorporating wood and found objects. I recycle old wood, sanding, carving and staining it to create texture and pattern and applying found materials to further enhance the surface. I like working with recycled wood. The emergence of the grain upon sanding and burnishing a piece of driftwood, an old roof shake or fenceboard is exciting.
I love carving faces and hands, giving life to these constructions.
The work is an assemblage not only of materials but of thought fragments accumulated daily - scraps found on the pathway as well as in the storage place of my memory.
