I attended Otis Parsons in Los Angeles and graduated from Emily Carr College in Vancouver, 1988 major; Sculpture. I make sculptures out of found, recycled and salvaged objects. I love finding that perfect piece of metal with an acquired patina and forged so beautifully by the many feet and cars that have trampled over it. Or the abandon, broken, discarded pieces that were once part of someone's coveted possession with it's own history. I weave them together in a different yet somewhat familiar light with a new story to tell. To me the nature of working with found objects is an ever changing-evolving structure, and I love the complexity of it! When this 'medley of elements' come together to create something so different, with it's own history 'now' this is always exciting to me. I live in Vancouver, B.C. with my two lovely cats.
