I find my inspiration in nature, urban and industrial decay, religion, vintage fashion and burlesque dancers. I see beauty in things some my find grotesque.
My approach to art is to experiment with mixed-media using multiple styles to create something truly unique. It is layered with photography, paint, encaustic ax, welding and discarded objects that have been forgotten.
As I began to show, I realized I didn't want to hang them in a purchased frame..... so this is when I asked my Father to teach me how to weld. Now, the welding is an integral part of my art.
