i explore the life and history contained in discarded objects: vintage books, antique lace, rusty findings, kitchen scraps, and other assorted bits and found things. in processing these collected fragments into abstract and figurative paintings, i allow their stories to work on my own biases of brokenness and wholeness, of being and becoming. my work is a relentless search of poetry in the debris, an affirmation of life and possibility.
