I like to make durable surfaces using discarded metal and fabric, resin and beeswax. My thrift and creativity stem from childhood experiences: I spent several years on a remote homestead in rural eastern Washington, and several more living itinerantly across the country. My family gleaned abandoned household items on evening alley walks, bought clothes at Salvation Army, and slept under the stars in campgrounds and fields.
I developed a keen respect for nature and a vivid curiosity about the things people leave behind.
I am a theatrical wardrobe technician by trade, and have acquired a working knowledge of the design, manufacture and use of a broad spectrum of materials by caring for costumes.
You can find my beeswax-on-found fabric greeting cards, along with my salvaged metal tiles, at Twilight Artist Collective in West Seattle.
A brief description of my resin-on-metal method is posted on the System Three Resins Success Stories.
