I am an artist and a collector of lost objects. The bits and fragments that I gather have energy from the chronicles of their previous use. These objects are emotional artifacts; containing a relation to an action, a person or an intriguing unknown. I use various modes of connection in my assemblage sculpture including welding, sewing, weaving and collage. The depth and textures that are formed through sculptural experiments create a layered narrative. In my work unwanted debris is composed into a multilayered storyline of what was left behind.
