Introduction I am fascinated by old things. Once precious toys and well-loved game pieces, vintage wood, fragile ancient letters and maps—these artifacts are my raw materials. As I work I am reminded that these objects were once used by real people, and were in many cases cherished items. Sorting, selecting, and finding the story that brings order to these random objects is magical. I strive to stretch perception of what is “junk” and what is “art.” Our world is a beautiful and curious place, and that’s what motivates me to look at it more closely through painting. My paintings capture real landscapes -- from wind bending trees, to bizarre shadows. While based in reality, my images are never realistic looking. A bit of simplified abstraction always comes into play. I have two blogs: insidetheboxart.blogspot and insidethebookblog.blogspot. I hope you visit often!
