I create artwork in the style of assemblage, grouping found or unrelated objects into compositions including representational images such as landscapes, plants and animals, and people; abstractions; and riffs on other artists such as Calvino, Kandinsky and Picasso. My ideas come from observed images or from the found objects themselves. I arrange rusted pieces on canvas or wood and attach them by hand-stitching with diverse fibers—cotton, hemp, linen, silk, or metal. Linear pieces replace one-dimensional lines and two-dimensional flat fragments create shapes or color blocks. Because the rusted objects are somewhat familiar, the interpretation of a piece flickers between the parts and the whole.
