Artist Statement

As a resident of New England I have a great reverence for the tools and artifacts that embody our cultural heritage. I salvage bits and pieces of our history by collecting parts such as: distressed wood, rusty tools, broken antiques and vintage silver and brass items.

I combine these parts in unique ways to preserve and extend their life through an aesthetic transformation in my collection of "Antiques & Assemblages." Each assemblage has a focus or theme: maritime, agrarian, figurative etc.; parts are carefully selected to enhance the theme. Reflection and discernment guide this process, so others can discover the natural beauty and charm of our New England heritage as it emanates from these unique sculptures.
