Artist Statement

I find myself collecting traces of people’s lives. Memories misplaced in need of recognition; old letters; vintage matchbooks; boxes of aging paper treasure. Using vintage ephemera in my work is a way to pay homage to those memories, those lives. In a world that is becoming more digital each day, I’m driven to bring new life to objects that may otherwise be lost and deteriorated in time. The challenge I seek is to maintain a balance between working with such old objects and recreating them in a contemporary artwork that holds the test of time.
