I believe I'm driven by two things, really. The beauty in the ‘ugly’, and the refuse of post human consumption. I usually walk with my head down and will pick up and save bits of rusted metal, crushed cans, bottle caps, paper, ephemera... I very rarely actively hunt these things. It's happenstance. Luck. My mixed media work and collages are born of this ugly beauty. Can't stop. Won't stop.
I've been making things since 5th grade. It started with a linoleum cut portrait of a rabbit. I guess you could say my career job is art director. I've done it for a few companies over the last 30 years. The Girl Skateboard Company being the longest and most important to me. At the moment I am quarantined at home working as a freelance graphic artist, art director, illustrator and cook. I still make things at night. Can't stop, won't stop.
