Artist Statement

A diversified and ecclectic approach to creativity

One of the greatest gifts in life is the gift of creativity. To manifest original thought, bring it to shape, color, texture and function. I enjoy working with recycled materials. I refashion, repaint or re-tool them into new multi-sensory works of art. This has lead me into the decorative arts and the direct influence of a late 18th century New England Journeyman called Moses Eaton. It was apparent to me that this early artisan was influenced by the patterns that emerge from nature. After moving to Harrisville, NH, I chose to live in an environment overwhelmed by the bounty of nature in this part of the United States. This influence of pastoral surroundings, combined with the hunt for antiques and rare surfaces, has brought me to the current point of my work: One of intriguing folk art assemblages utilizing old barnwood, aged wooden ironing boards, architectural pieces, chairs, parts of tables, etc. Each finished product is one of a kind and tells it's own whimsical story.
