About the Work
Everyday objects and materials that have had another life inspire me. I am influenced by what I see and use everyday.I elevate the commonplace and instill beauty and nobility in the often overlooked world of commercial products. My work is multi-media. I work in oil, acrylic, watercolor and collage. Reconstructed packaging becomes pop art inspired social commentary.
