I like saving things, like material that has no home. Things from trashcans, or the side of the road find their way into my practice. Papers, plastics, found colors, and abandoned drawings, all rescued. Working completely in reuse, I think of the environment first when creating; wanting to show possibilities, open up awareness of our consumption habits and the availability of recycling and repurposing. The reuse is a starting point for me to then begin to add my own layers. Playing with color, experimenting with different applications, always back to being more conscious of what goes through our hands.
