My Recycled Found Object Sculptures:
Ken Marquis from Landfill Art approached me to be a part of the Landfill Art project. Ken was going to have 1041 artists take scrapped hubcaps clean them up and we the artists were going to turn what was 'junk' into masterpieces. It will be a traveling exhibit and a table book when finished. After I sent my hubcap to Ken I was hooked. The idea of recycling found objects as my canvas is a riot! Flea markets have provided me with the 'treasures' I use in my pieces. Most recycled found object artists use just that... found objects. Many paint and have their own wonderful style. I incorporate my polymer clay on most of my pieces which makes my pieces different.
My first 300 "Wall Dancers" were made in bed after my diagnosis of Lyme Disease in 2002. I was literally crawling & could not focus. Since I have sold over 1400 of my "Wall Dancers" dolls. I believe that everything happens for a reason and I accept I am exactly where I am supposed to be today. I choose to live my life with the cards that I was dealt. I am blessed with a beautiful family & friends. I have met great people & learned many valuable lessons on my journey. I cannot change the Lyme Disease but I can choose how to live my life with it and I do. Life is good!
