About my work:
To answer the question 'Why continue to do the art, rather than not do it?' or 'Why all the art'? Art has always been the mode of expression that flows most naturally from me and I believe that sharing feelings is a valuable tool to finding common ground with our fellow humans.

Who hasn't felt excluded, joy, suffering, love or any number of other feelings at some time in his or her life? These common feelings are a great way to reach into the core of the shared human experience and further other meaningful messages as well.

For many years now, even before it was fashionable to carry "green bags" for your groceries, I have been advocating recycling old things ready for the trash into new and exciting things. It began more than 20 years ago when I picked up my first pair of tattered old 'boy friend' jeans and decided the back pockets were still in good enough shape to construct a small purse for myself. Since then I have been able to see art in the common and everyday objects I see around me and, with a little creativity, I have been able to make at least half of my art out of recycled materials.

I have come to believe that we buy entirely too much in this culture while throwing away valuable resources every day. Furthermore, I like being an example to my fellow humans of being circumspect about making only meaningful purchases and being conscious about the resources we consume and getting the fullest use out of them.

During my studies in the social sciences, I came to be aware of and appreciate cultures we consider primitive that carefully use every single scrap of the natural resources they consume and I have often thought we could learn a valuable lesson from that.
