ARTIST STATEMENT

I work with found objects and books. Both have a voice and a past life and that’s what attracts me. I like when a surface shows you that time doesn’t stop. Usually discarded I embrace these books and their paper already filled with life’s marks and scuffs. I feed off that adding my own marks then sending them back out in to the world that once discarded them. My hope is that they tell my story and find their place as valued objects once again.
