Aquatica is my series of found object assemblage based on oceanic life.
The refuse of our shores and tossed fragments become the bones of new sculpture.
I am driven to collect objects that have an interesting look, feel & aura about them. Usually the pieces seem to find me as I am walking in the woods, streets and shorelines. Sometimes it takes years for me to see a connection between two random objects. From there I find other pieces that seem to link. As the assemblage develops I have many pieces to edit to find the essence. Using hand tools I screw, nail, pin, weld or rivet fragments together.
