I have a tendency to personify inanimate objects and feel genuine compassion for those that are damaged or disregarded. I see potential in broken bits and find beauty in rust and erosion. The older an object, the more haunting and alluring its ghost. Collage & assemblage art allows me to indulge these concepts by creating small worlds in a box where tall tales are told, jokes are cracked, emotions stirred, poems imparted and songs are sung.

By using images that replicate the past and objects that authenticate it, my pieces become storytellers, dream interpreters and memory inducers. They are innately lyrical and flicker along to their own silent film. Their dimensional nature and design intend for you to raise an eyebrow and lean in for a closer look.

Thank you for faving Steampunked Halloween.  Your works have been very inspirational to me.  I'm beginning to get the mechanics of assemblage art down, but have not developed the whimsical flair that seems to come so easily for you.
