Artist Statement: I see potential in broken and discarded objects. I find joy in transforming them into art. My paintings begin by applying a variety of composites, such as black lava and tempered glass to the surface. While working soft pastels or layers of acrylic over the textures I eschew brushes and palette knives for my favorite mark-making tools; my hands and my credit cards. Using a credit card to create art began as a symbolic act to put plastic to better use. Now, it is my tool of choice to sculpt, carve and manipulate the paint into a texture that is visually intriguing.
