artist statement

I find inspiration from vintage ephemera, a gorgeous handwritten letter, a typewritten bill of sale, a matchbook cover or a calendar page from 1964. Maybe because I’m an artist with a background in graphic design or maybe because when I see these items I think about the people that used them in days past. My rural upbringing gave me an appreciation for hard working people and the objects that help them in their daily lives. My current series of art pieces celebrates all of these things.

My artwork is a collage method of building up layers of encaustic paint, incorporating found objects and embellishing the piece through incising and painting. I enjoy creating texture as well as celebrating the beauty of weathered or rusted items.
