In my new work, I set out to achieve texture in 3-dimensions using natural elements, fragments and remnants that I find in the world, including old shingles,and other surfaces as the base for acrylics, latex, molding paste, weeds, seeds and more.
I love the textures and forms that spring from these old materials and, although my work may look slightly unruly, it is really rather deliberate. I have been doing what I have wanted to do for a long time - creating work that is not flat, a kind of relief as it were. I want them to be joyful and maybe even make people smile.
