Assemblage 3D Found Object Art is being displayed at Birger Sandzen Art Gallery, Lindsborg, KS.
Artist Statement: I have been an assemblage artist that works with 3D art since 2007. It started with as a form of grief therapy. I started designing watches, then 3D art and now Christmas, and will move onto other holiday decor.
My pocket watch art has been featured on the TV show Texas Country Reporter and published in Belle Armoire Jewelry Magazine. I have also had my work featured in numerous newspapers as well in many juried art shows.
I search high and low for lonely, misfit vintage pieces and use them to recreate beautiful one of a kind artwork that can be passed down generation to generation. My supplies are aged vintage to antique. Some pieces are losing paint or have nips or scuff marks, but that’s the beauty in what I do. I give them new life and purpose them.
*** Each of my designs are one of a kind. Many hours go into each piece from finding the perfect antique items to complete an idea in my head to hours of design work. Some pieces of work come easily, others may take years to complete. My work is designed to be passed down through generations. Each of my Christmas pieces are secured in place. My large 9 pound pieces are also secured and can be turned over without any pieces coming loose. I take great pride in my quality of work.
Recycle. Reuse. Recreate.
