Collaged Memories- made from re-cycled, up-cycled, found objects

DIY was not a trend in my house growing up, it was a way of life. My work from the earliest creative beginnings has always originated from "what was on hand". I loved the possibilities presented to me by the leftovers found in my mother's "sewing closet" and my father's "wood bin" in the garage.

To this day I gather piles of this and that for potential projects, waiting for time (a commodity I wish I could manufacture) and the muse to make herself known. I am delighted to re-purpose discards, leftovers and found objects with a new creative form. Below are a few examples of artwork created from "what was on hand" in the stash, combined with found objects and thrift store finds.
