Found objects and ephemera brought together to create joyful, uplifting, & inspiring 3-D assemblage on canvas.
I construct colorful and inspirational assemblage on canvas by combining many small objects including wood pieces, beads, magazine clippings, found objects, and photos. Using empathy and understanding, I craft each piece with love, care and respect, individualizing every piece with the recipient in mind. Whether they are celebrating a birthday, graduation, wedding, or milestone in their life, I make sure each piece is tailored to reflect their own unique set of interests. When working on a commissioned piece, I sit down and have a conversation about the recipient asking “What do they (you) need to hear right now?" and "What needs to be said?" I ask for special photos or ephemera to include, and then begin searching for other words and pictures to start piecing something together. From conception to completion, each one takes 2-4 weeks to come together.
Specializing in weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, as well as recovery-themed work.
Give me a theme (what is being celebrated, what motivation is needed, relationship to specific person, etc.) and two colors, and I'll create an original work of art, personalized for you or your loved one.
