- ABOUT THE ARTIST -
A born artist with a lifelong concentration in painting and drawing, I have spent most of my career as a muralist and decorative painter. After relocating to Long Island, NY, I began walking the beaches with my Frenchies (The Crew) and I was struck by the amount of plastics and other marine debris that continually washed ashore. I immediately reimagined these finds as materials for new works of mixed media art.
My works range from low profile, colorful abstracts made of plastics, Mylar and other flat elements to more sculptural & structural pieces several inches in depth. The beach found objects are adhered to a stretched canvas or wood box panel. The final product is submerged in an epoxy resin for further adhesion and an underwater quality. Each piece is handcrafted and one-of-a-kind.
