All work is done with plastic debris on a rigid support. The plastic has been collected primarily from the coastal area in my home town or in the surrounding area. The background is in oil.
Form my commissioned artwork the pieces are created to capture a loved one or a beloved memory. I am able to sit with each of the subjects and take several photos as a reference. During this time together often some small secret will be shared–or an even larger dream. I will add a handwritten note, recording it to the base layer of the work. This forever secret foundation helps to give the piece life.
