I am drawn to the beauty in found and reclaimed objects the weathered texture of old wood or the rusted patina on metal. The materials themselves are my main source of inspiration. Parts of an old lobster trap or a rusted rake have had a previous purpose which I attempt to transform into something new yet familiar .... a fish ... a bird ... a turtle. My creativity is strongly influenced by the art of the Inuit and other native cultures of the world where nature, particularly animals, were frequently rendered in tribute to the wonder of life.
