I’m especially drawn to materials that
are decidedly not precious--things that
some might even consider to be trash.
In this vein, my current work is primarily
concerned with re-purposing decorative
tin containers. I like to use the term
upcycling. Finding the tins and then
selecting the most intriguing areas to
work with is, in many ways, a holdover
from my graphic design training.
Somehow, I find it both comforting and
challenging to work with found imagery.
The variety within the raw material is
almost limitless, so I have focused
largely on the circle as a unifying theme.
As I grow in the work, I am also exploring
different shapes and more complex
constructions. It is by far the most
engaging work I've ever done. I can't wait
to see where it will next take me.
