Artist Statement
"Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art." ~ Leonardo da Vinci ~

"The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape." ~ Pablo Picasso ~

"Whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him."
~ Colossians 3:17 ~

Having tried different mediums in art, I most enjoy using unique, eclectic objects, working together in an expression, or thought, that evokes emotion, and a sense of "Ah-Ha!". Much of my assemblage art takes a light hearted look at things or events, but many offer a deeper, reflective view of the spiritual and our journey with God.

Additional information

About
Most of my work is "Assemblage Art", a three-dimensional artistic composition made from found objects.

Using found objects from old, rusty, sometimes broken things; to bits, pieces & parts of other things, I enjoy the recycling of what some would see as usless objects. Then using these items in unusual, unique ways, in artistic compositions, which often give a spiritual message.
Many are used as interactive prayer meditations in a prayer chapel or used as prayer stations for events or workshops. Please feel free to contact me about the possibility of bringing them to your worship space or event.
