Artist Statement

“Pick me”, “use me”, “I can be beautiful again” If inanimate objects could speak this is what they say to me. My art is an “Assemblage” of unrelated items that were found, cast off or gifted. I recycle and reinvent relying on my design education and life experiences. Hopefully they will bring pleasure along with inspiring others to consider other uses to what they cast away.

As a thanks for so many blessings in m life I donate proceeds from my art to local charities. Because of the reason I have named my venture GRATEFUL CREATIONS.

Medium: Assemblage
