Manchester, NH, USA

The discarded and the forgotten spark my creative process. Opposed to traditional artistic mediums, rusty metal, peeling paint, and battered wood speak to me. In such a consumer based society, my found objects give us the chance to reexamine our castaways.

I incorporate the viewer into my work by inviting him or her to feel the textures and experience the movement of the assemblage before them. I transform everyday, mundane objects into thought provoking centerpieces for viewers to breathe their own life into.

My work has grown to be featured in galleries across the state of New Hampshire and in private collections throughout New England.
