Sculpture - Recycled Found Object Sculpture
I have been a contemporary artist since 2003. Diagnosed with Lyme Disease in 2002 I was told "doing anything creative moving forward would be impossible" caused from the damage to my brain. I now have sold 1500 original pieces of art. I am recycling found objects combined with my usage of polymer clay. I am truly loving turning one man's trash into my treasures! The 4Art Inc Gallery is where my work has found a wonderful new 'home' in the well known Zhou Bros. Art Center. I will continue to create beautiful works of art fuelled by passion, whimsy and imagination.

I think most females wish they had a dollhouse if they never had one and it was a gift to my inner child. I was an abused wife for 12 years widowed when I was 31. The dollhouse was thrown into a garbage bag I lugged around for years forgetting about it living my 'new' life. Prior to our gallery's annual exhibit which was "Shattered Mirror" I chose to go back a lifetime, open cans of worms and demons but build my
