In both my assemblages and my guitars I use a found objects combined with my own paintings, drawings and prints to make objects with multiple purposes. The guitars are playable art pieces. I construct them to be played, and it is in their use that they become more beautiful. My other work is narrative. Look closely at the images, text and objects. Their intent is to tell a story, invite reminiscence and be enjoyed. Craft is the intersection between use and beauty. Within my work I hope to add a narrative dimension to that intersection. Telling stories, making art, and working with kids is an incredible way to spend a life.
