These works are mixed media wall sculptures.

A desire for varied materials and textures led me from painting to mixed media.

As I am very concerned for our environment, about the amount of trash that our society generates, most of the materials I use are recycled, items which otherwise would be added to this trash. From construction sites I scavenge wood, wire, metal, cardboard and transform these commonplace materials into an aesthetic piece.
