Creek Fire Sunset

archival inkjet print , 5" x 5" image; 10" x 10" frame, 2020, $100

"A very small image of perhaps the largest thing we all share - the sun."

Susan Arnold


collage and acrylic on scratchboard, 10" x 8", 2021, $250

"An abstract exploration of natural and architectural forms combining collage and acrylic over scratchboard. In history and literature, Blackbird symbolism abounds.... Feel free to interpret as you will."

Clare Asche

Butterfly from Pompeii

mixed media on paper, 9" x 9", 2019, $250

"In her recent artwork, Clare Asch is interested in exploring the interaction of spontaneous gesture and fluid paint in relation to a geometric structure. Her primary medium is watercolor and large acrylic shaped canvases. Ms. Asch has an MFA from Lesley University and a BFA from the University of Massachusetts. She also studied for three years at the Cooper Union School of Art and Architecture. Some of Ms. Asch’s recent exhibition have been at Galatea Fine Art in Boston, the Attleboro Art Museum, the Cambridge Art Association and at the Associazione Culturale Sei l’Arte in Venice. She was recently commissioned by the deCordova Museum Corporate Program to place an installation of artwork at the Riverfront Office Park in Cambridge, MA."

Jessica Ash


watercolor on paper, 10" x 10" framed, 2021, $300

"1994 is an abstract take on a beloved pattern from my childhood. My grandmother made matching sweatshirts for my cousin and I. The vibrant, bold, and funky pattern was a favorite. Looking back at pictures of us wearing the wild top it reminds me of the joy and boldness of being a kid."

Ann Barrett

A Little Night Music

watercolor collage with post-consumer plastic, 9" x 6", 2021, $200

"My artwork is about the natural world and the ways in which we can feel our way out of the multiple crises we find ourselves in. I believe in not only pointing out problems, but in illuminating ways in which we can solve them. Many people are doing exciting work right now finding solutions to our country’s destructive practices. Art can help lead the way. But during times of stress, it’s important to have a little fun, to try something new and be less serious for a while. I find ArtsWorcester’s One exhibitions a place to show the experiments I make to relieve stress, and to maybe even break new creative ground. Breathe a sigh of relief, then we can return to our work making the world a better place."

Triple Tassel Mini Drawer

yarn and plastic canvas, 4.75" x 4.75" x 2.5", 2021, $250

"My memere’s handmade needlepoint Christmas ornaments have served as a springboard for my exploration into the versatility of this classic medium. Childhood memories of fiber arts have inspired me to expand the boundaries of needlepoint in both design and construction. This miniature drawer adorned with tassels evokes both nostalgia and intrigue, while providing a functional vessel for trinkets and keepsakes."

Positive Phototaxis

mixed media: clock, clay, paint pens, jewelry/beads, tulle, 11" x 8" x 3", 2021, Not For Sale

"About 4 years ago I made a big life change that launched me into what I would consider my butterfly phase. I pushed my way out of a tight cocoon and spread a pair of wings I didn't know I had. I was bright and bold, I met lots of new people and tried a bunch of new things. I social butterflied my way into anything that was out of my comfort zone, and it felt really good. I never felt more awake or more alive. Then Covid hit, triggering this moth phase I am currently in. I have more delicate feathery wings, so my attempts at enriching my life more closely resembles a clumsy bump into a porch light, rather than a graceful landing on a pretty flower."

Kathleen Galat Bowers

In The Silence, Fes, Morocco

photo on canvas, 8" x 8", 2018, $125 (sold)

"In the Before Times, when the world was open, safe and friendly, finding 'something of beauty' was important to me, Now I do the same thing closer to home, but it gives me pleasure to share intimate scenes of far away places when I can."

Evelyn Britz-Cunningham


oil on canvas board, 5" x 7", 2021, $275 (sold)

Christine Brown

Mountains To Move

quilting cotton, muslin, thread, 10" x 10", 2021, $120

"Sometimes we inherit the struggles of our families. My grandmother would say: "In this life, you'll always have a mountain to climb." She carried the wisdom of a black woman who lived on the underside of history. This piece represents the inherited and created mountains each one of us has to overcome."

Iphi Burg


mixed with acrylic, 7" x 5", 2020, $125 (sold)

"My Name is Iphigenia Gossios Burg, born in Greece, lived in Europe until my mid-twenties came to USA to study Art. My medium is oil-pastel, charcoal, oil paint and acrylics and I am open to all kind of material as a mixed media like collage and other materials such as leaves, feathers, or artificial material. I have two types of styles, the visual way by capturing the beauty around me that I see. The other is the spiritual approach where I feel inspired by a spiritual significance and then I work on it until I feel it’s done. Mixed media is one of my favorite developments, watching my ideas becoming unique art pieces."

Marion Buricatu

Time for a Coffee Break

oil, 9" x 9", 2020, $400 (sold)

"I was looking for a new subject to paint, and I was done with flowers. After a few days of complaints that I was “suffering from lack of inspiration,” my spouse asked me if I would let him set up my next still-life (and hopefully stop grumbling!). Obviously, I was a bit worried. I couldn’t resist giving him a few recommendations, but let him handle it. He chose a french press, a coffee mug, and a speaker, and after a few changes to the composition, I was excited to start painting. It was really interesting to see how a different person, even one that shares a daily life with me, can see the world so differently. With a different look at a few mundane objects, he helped me kickstart my inspiration again."

Samantha Callery

Not Quite Sunset

"This work shows a human being submerged in a lived experience that revolves around the technological labyrinth of modern society. Technological advances can transform a person and créate dependence on them. I represent this through the use , mechanisms ,gears, pulleys, screws, transmission movement chains.

Christine Croteau

embroidery thread on fabric, 6" diameter, 2021, $170 (sold)

"When in its juvenile stage, the eastern newt is known as a red eft. During this stage, the eft will grow and leave its birth pond to journey into the world. In the 2-3 years until adulthood, the eft may travel long distances until it finds the perfect pond to breed in and call home. Now vulnerable to land predators, the eft’s skin acts as a defense mechanism. Its bright orange color indicates the young newt’s toxicity. The eft is small but mighty, and packs a lot of development, travel, and survival skills into its young adulthood."

"Wow, a challenge for an amateur to make art in 10"! I prefer large canvases but I couldn't resist trying! It was fun to make a combo I'd not done before: painted canvas, then cutting out canvas & paper to paint leaves, & then to have real leaves too!"

Susan Fisher

Protected Too

clay and foam, 10" x 9", 2021, Not For Sale

"This piece was created in response to the Pandemic. Everyone has had a different response and way of processing this moment in time. I wanted to use this mask to process these responses. The need to protect ourselves and shelter has been in our thoughts and that came into play in Protected Too. The writing represents all the terms and words we have been bombarded with during the pandemic. The stoneware mask is surrounded by foam pieces that were sewn around them."

Francine Gintoff


acrylic paint on cotton on found antique book, 9" x 6", 2020, Not For Sale

"CODECHROME was created during the Covid Pandemic. As a collector, I found this beautiful book of silky cotton fabrics which had intriguing names. I did a painting on each one interpreting each color with an object or portrait. Most are done with an indigo coloration similar to a tattoo."

John Gintoff


drawn on ink jet print, 10" x 10", 2021, $999

"These works were inspired by Anthony Burgess’ 1961 novel, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. A lot of the language in the book is based on Russian words. The language that the teenage gang members speak is called Nadsat (based on the Russian word for teenager). After each collage is completed I draw one of Burgess’ Russian based Anglicized words in actual Russian using the Cyrilic alphabet as the drawing elements that cover and activate the underlying collage. The color choices for the drawings of the letters are influenced by the underlying collaged element".

"Visiting New York City in the summer."

Gloria Goguen


linocut print- ink on Japanese Kitakata paper, 8" x 10", 2021, $220

"Nasturtiums - Little red, orange and yellow faces dancing in the summer sun. They are beautiful dressed in jeweled raindrops after a shower. I choose this particular floral subject because I was struck with the water lily like character of the plants. Blossoms floating above a pool of rounded dew dropped leaves."

A Little House on Burdette Avenue

acrylic on canvas, 8" x 8", 2021, $150

"A Little House On Burdette Avenue" is an example of a typical house built in Massachusetts in the 1920s. It should look familiar and might remind you of your own house or one you used to live in. This house was in a friendly, Italian neighborhood and my children ran next door to our neighbor's back door everyday to collect candy."

He’s Just A Little Guy

digital illustration printed on card stock, 10" x 10", 2021, $100 (sold)

"I began by asking my colleagues what their definition of “little” was. After mixed judgements and various explanations, I was still thinking of what I would define as “little.” I draw on notepads at work between customers (as any artist might do) while working the register. My gator guy went from being a quick sketch on a post-it note to a digital illustration in empty space. Alligators are misunderstood creatures, which many of us can see within ourselves from time to time. Feeling small when others might perceive you as large is a human experience we all endure. It will always depend on perspective and perception."

Gail Hormats

Snow Cave

acrylic on canvas, 4" x 4", 2021, $250

"An experiment in acrylic pour technique. As an abstract artist, this method of creating a painting appealed to my inner child. It harkens back to the spinning and splatter paintings made at fairs in my youth. Creating this made me smile."

Knot Fly

half knots in black waxed cord, 1" x 1" x 3", 2021, $100

"The Knot Fly is part of my Standing Rope series where I attempt 3D line drawings of standing figures. Originally I planned larger pieces in the 1 to 2 foot tall range, but had to scale down to ensure objects remained free standing. The waxed cord works well at the scale of this exhibition."

Teresa Lamacchia

Hand in Shadow

acrylic paint, digital photograph, oil paint stick on canvas, 8" x 10", 2021, $200

"This painting is an example of my continuing fascination with light and shadow. Sunlight moves across the windows of the house, creating in its path unexpected transitory shadows. I was caught off-guard by the image of my hand reflected on a white porcelain sink and grabbed my phone to capture it before it disappeared."

Marybeth Lensel


acrylic, 10" x 10", 2021, $150

"What one sees before them at any given moment contains layers. They can be fragments of this moment, dreams & memories. I am interested in capturing a few moments at the same time."

Bakery Case

polymer clay, 6.5" x 5", 2020-2021, $300

"Working in small scale brings me a unique sense of joy and focus. Inspired by painter Wayne Thiebaud, I create miniature desserts from polymer clay, using mostly household objects to mimic the textures, colors, and patterns of their real-life counterparts."

Madeleine Lord

Last Shoe

welded steel, 9" x 10" x 3.5", 2020, $900

"I created this as a model for a 12 public art installation near a former shoe factory being converted to condominiums. The project was cancelled. It is made with a shoe last, thus the title."

Natalie MacKnight

Pixie High Jinx (Mini)

gouache on paper, 6" x 7" framed, 2021, $125

"This composition is inspired by the improbable balancing act of rocks within an old New England stone wall. I imagine a handful of young pixies quietly giggling as they practice their levitation skills on unsuspecting rocks, with pixie dust flying about as they hover and dance above a bed of soft pine needles blanketing the floor."

Ashley MacLure

How Do I Tell You?

wheel thrown ceramic teacup and saucer, 4" x 4" x 4", 2021, Not For Sale

"My mother kept a collection of china in a beautiful oak cabinet in our dining room. She always said, “someday when you get married, you’ll get that china.” Instead of a bunch of dishes, I carry a suitcase of trauma. China is a domestic, inherently female rite of passage: a woman might receive a hope chest, a piece of jewelry, her mother’s bridal veil, or china when she gets married. We pass all matters of things to our children. So much about that tradition mirrors trauma to me. Trauma manifests in different forms from generation to generation, but it is handed down. In my family we do not speak of the abuses my mother experienced at the hands of her grandfather. We chose shame and silence. The tradition of silence was handed down. She suffered, and so my father and I suffered greatly. In the end, her suffering is what killed her. She took her own life in 2012 after years of battling her demons. Now I’m left with this story. It’s my mother’s story, but it’s also my story. How do I tell my daughter our story? Silence is not the answer."

Emily Manning-Mingle

Sougia Stone I

oil on canvas board, 6" x 4", 2021, $250

"My paintings of rocks and other natural objects, collected on local trips and vacations abroad, become spaces for meditation and self-reflection. Highlighting a devotion to careful looking, they are made by layering abstract marks over emotive color fields and meditative patterns. Gathered over time, I often represent the same objects again and again, transforming them into intricate and expansive viewing experiences."

Sugar Jar

Manufactured Autonomy

steel, archival pigment prints on epson luster, 4 1/2” x 3” x 1” in box, 2017, $300

"Even imperfection itself may have its ideal or perfect state.” - Thomas de Quincey The pearl, a material prized for perfection, yet that is so rarely perfect, serves as the inspiration for this body of work. At its origin, a pearl is nothing more than an agitation to the shell it grows in. In Manufactured Autonomy, I examine and catalog the physical intricacies such as size, shape, color, texture, and other defining characteristics of pearls and the shells that they grow in. Through repetition of intimately sized photographs the pearls are cataloged and come together to create an archive, resembling an antiquated family photo album. The use of a chemical reaction to rust the metal structure references the coating process of daguerreotypes and tintypes and points toward the impact of time on material. Time stands as a dichotomy as it represents both death and life, as it naturally slowly and steadily destroys steel and also gives life to pearls. No part of life is untouched by times impact. And these minute details in the world are what draw my attention."

Kayla McLoughlin


mixed media (watercolor, gel pen, collage), 3.5" x 5" x 3.5", 2021, $150

"I want my art to inspire the same feeling I have when I see a whale or an owl. Goosebumps and a quiet joy. I hope it at least interests you. Who can't identify with the mighty Sirin? A creature that can tell the future and lures men to their death."

Bessie Coleman Still Flies

acrylic paint on reclaimed and laser cut wood, 7.25" x 8", 2021, $200

"Bessie Coleman, a talented pilot, spent her career publicizing the hardships women, African Americans, and Native Americans had becoming pilots in the US. Unable to obtain a pilot's license in the US herself, she raised money, and went to Paris for it instead. In June 1921 she was the first African American, Native American and woman, to obtain an international license. This is ahead of Amelia Earhart who got hers in 1923. Usually borrowing planes, Bessie finally bought her own plane, a Curtiss JN-4 “Jenny” in 1926. Tragically that same year she fell to her death from the plane during a rehearsal for an air show. This piece keeps her in the air, flying a plane in whatever iteration that is, on her own terms, and as free as ever. This piece is made from laser cut wood pieces created from shapes and digitized photographs of her and her plane."

Human Spirit, Fragment

mixed media: cardboard, acrylic paint, oil pastel, ink, colored pencil, antique cloth doilies, 10" x 10" x 2", 2021, $175

"Interrogations: What happened to you? Where did your spark go? You used to be so fun. In what has become the most tumultuous upheaval I've yet to experience in this life, scraps of past and current works have been fragmented and reconstructed. The result provides new perspectives, determination, and reflection, as well as the dark cracks and crevices that remain."

Kat O'Connor

Relic: Sonoran Desert

oil and acrylic on aluminum, 6" X 6", 2021, $250

"There is a certain elevation implied by choosing an object to paint. We give it a value or importance that it may not have had on its own. Walking in the desert I’ve found many interesting objects: rocks, bones, the dried husks of plants, and even cast-off evidence of human activity. What do we choose to pick up? What do we choose to leave behind? Why?"

Donna O'Scolaigh Lange

A Type of Rain

oil on canvas, 8” x 10”, 2019, $325

"I like the way the preprinted type on the canvas shows through the image. I did the painting in transparent burnt umber lending a fairy like quality to the image."

"My subject matter has always been the plight of young girls and the challenges they face becoming women. Whether surviving trauma, such as sexual assault, physical or mental abuse, discrimination, or sexualization, growing up female is dangerous. Women are vulnerable. However, we are also resilient, fierce, and courageous. There have been moments, especially as my daughter was coming of age, when I would glimpse a mix of childhood vulnerability and teenage confidence, and I would feel both saddened at the loss of her innocence and reassured by her sense of self. This image is of her standing underneath a cherry tree in full bloom. She looked at me, I took the photo, and captured that moment in between her two worlds."

A Tender Autopsy

acrylic paint on polymer clay with a paper board and plastic base, 10" x 9" x 6", 2021, Not For Sale

"Working with clay is a visceral process- tearing and pulling with your hands and sharp implements, the feeling of fleshy softness giving way under your nails, being hunched over splattered paint and glues in the late hours of the night. This piece reflects my experience with creation, not only with clay, but with myself as well. Through this medium I explored taking something already existing and tenderly molding it into what I desire. I am a transgender man who is medically transitioning. I have taken the body I was born with and molded it into what I want it to be, and what it was meant to be. This art piece depicts myself taking control of my body in a way that is both grotesque and Romantic, but ultimately beautiful. "

Golden Age

mixed media on canvas, 8" x 10", 2021, $160

"'Golden Age' comes from a series of collage and mixed media work relating to stream of consciousness and embracing the intuition of available materials. The subjects relate to the feminine experience as it relates to modern life and roots to our planet and the universe."

Stacey Parker


soapstone, 4.5" x 3.5" x 2", 2020, $400

"Carving stone is a challenging and often times frustrating process but when it comes out right it is one of the most rewarding materials to work with. When I work with stone I spend time with the raw stone, studying the color, form and size and sometimes laminating multiple small pieces together before I begin to develop an idea for the final sculpture. Often I start with a basic idea that is developed as I get deeper into the carving. This allows for flexibility and surprises along the way."

Karen Reid


oil pastel on paper, 8" x 10", 2021, $375

"The works I create hover between abstraction and reality. Gestural, a colorful exploration of memory and place. It's a dance between me and the canvas. Responding to what the painting is telling me to do.The harmony of elements with imagination is an organic process. My influences come from Marc Chagall, Hans Hoffman, Arthur Dove, Helen Frankenthaler and many more depending on the day."

Pamella Saffer


encaustic on paper, 6.75" x 10", 2020, $100

"The starting point in my creative process is the medium. I need to have a comfortable relationship to the materials. I need to feel I can dance and move with them. Encaustic is beeswax mixed with damar (tree resin) and colored with powdered pigments. It has been used as an art medium for at least 2500 years. To me, it has a wonderful sweet earthy fragrance, and it flows. It is most often applied to wood, as in antiquity, but it can be applied to many other surfaces. I like the flow of the beeswax applied to paper."

A Touch of Henna

india ink on paper, framed, 8" circle, 2021, $135 (sold)

"Beauty is fleeting and my desire to capture the beauty of life (be it human, flora or fauna) is irresistible. As an introvert, I connect more with people's body language and less with their words. Through paintings I attempt to immortalize the beauty of my subjects in their entirety; not just their face/body but also their character. Floral still lifes are a delight to paint because I am able to project emotions onto unsuspecting flowers through the play of light and strategically placed brushstrokes."

Frog & Toad

linocut print, oil based ink on archival paper, 5" x 7", 2021, $100 (sold)

"These are two mini-prints from a series of drawing prompts from the month of October. Instead of drawing, I chose instead to use each prompt to make a 2x3 linocut print for each day. This piece exhibits “Frog” and “Toad” together in a frame."

Moss Study

watercolor on paper, 5 3/8" x 8", 2021, $100

"My work primarily reflects on the connection of the human experience with nature. Working in watercolor, my paintings inspire a reverent reflection on the land and the way in which it touches the spirit, from expansive landscapes to small moss-covered rocks. Inspired by daily meanders through the forest, the paintings encompass the serenity and clarity nature provides in times of both calm and chaos."

Tracy Spadafora


encaustic with photo transfer on braced wood panel, 8" x 8" x 1.5", 2017, $225

"In this painting, from my DNA series, I use DNA sequences as a base layer to provide both visual patterning and symbolic reference. The images layered on top of the code offer an open narrative. The paintings and constructions from this series are built on visual and symbolic associations, and the obscuring, deconstructing, and preserving of images in wax helps me to address a complex and shifting relationship between man, his biological roots, and the shaping of our natural environment."

One Bathroom

oil on canvas, 7" x 5", 2020, $180 (sold)

"Over the past few years my work has evolved into several different series, each with their own main idea, but all with one unifying theme – reality. Too often we forget what is real. I choose to embrace the chaos, the mundane, and the less-than-picturesque. I attempt to capture struggles of being a mother and a human being, as well as the quiet moments that often go unappreciated. Every piece tells a story. My work is never glamorized. Also, my work is not always meant to be pretty as reality is not always pretty. Some may say much of my work appears dark, but to those I must respond that, just as with life, a sense of humor is often required."

The Spell

oil on wood, 7.25" x 10", 2021, $350

"In this painting I was focused on trying to give the paint a tactile, physical reality. I wanted each stroke to feel like a real thing that existed in space. I wanted the strokes to feel like building blocks that locked together in dynamic equilibrium. I like finding shapes that suggest meaning in the process of painting."

Pamela Tarbell

Reliquary: Filthy Lucre

claro walnut, maple, patinated coins, silver/gold leaf, glass dome, 6" x 6" x 6", 2018, $1,500

"During my 32 years as a professor of media studies at Framingham State University, I was primarily concerned with theoretical principles and digital production/reproduction methods. In purposeful contrast, my art has always involved wood and other common tangible materials, employs tools and processes which are decidedly low tech, and results in unique and very physical objects. That makes me feel connected artists and artisans–across cultures and throughout the world–who have since prehistory routinely made things which were more carefully crafted and beautiful than they really needed to be. And as a thumbnail statement of my personal aesthetics, I have always been interested in classical forms, the ancient, the so-called primitive, and the strange."

Daniel Temple

Summit Series - The Trojan Horse

oil on canvas, 10" x 10", 2021, $300

"I believe the Trojan Horse is a classic example of reimagining a plan to gain access to an elusive goal. Since things don’t always go as planned adaptation becomes a necessary tactic in creating art. In this case, cutting a portion of canvas from a larger piece ended up being the route needed to call this one done."

Maria Termini

Blue Face with Green Eyes

silkscreen and photoshop, 8" x 10", 2021, $100

"I am drawn to the primal universal power of faces transformed with color and line. I express this by using silkscreen and photoshop to explore adventures into the not yet known."

"My work is about wood, shape, color, and how they interact and are enhanced by each other. I enjoy the process of fabricating and veneering the shapes I design to support color as well as the craftsmanship required in such work."

Simon Tozer

Semence du Salut

"Here is a totem of inspiration. An angelic muse. A load of dripping wax lends to notes of 'semence du salute.' A one-man salvation army."

Martha Wakefield

The Odyssey

mixed media: cold wax, oil, pigment powder on panel, 8" x 8" x 1.5", 2020, $450

"My work is an investigation of the fragility of memory. I am intrigued by how memory morphs from persistent vividness to fleeting passages to total loss. Memory has no physicality: we cannot hold it in our hands yet we carry it with us. It has no weight yet can weigh us down. We may bury a recollection deep inside until a scent or voice or place conjures its power to rise. Memory changes with each recall becoming altered narratives. Through paint, graphite, ink, crayon and cold wax medium I explore its power and mysterious fragility."

Jill Watts

Multitasking, From My Yard Series

ampersand clayboard, crayon, collage, glue, 8" x 10", 2021, $150

"Some time ago I began a series of photos attempting to capture the life in my neighborhood visible from my house and yard. This was a Godsend during the pandemic. What was often missing was the sense of movement and change that occurred as I watched. The photos were interesting as a documentary of the positive events in my area but did not rise to my definition of art. I began using them as a basis for further exploration, attempting to capture the nuances of these events."

Neil Wilkins


encaustic mixed media, 8" x 8", 2020, $250 (sold)

"This work explores the nature of boundaries and looks at how relationships between the objects and shapes become defined and altered by proximity as they flow across a picture plane. The paining presents impermanent elusive qualities that symbolize passing moments and act as physical representations of transition. They inhabit a space where change is not sudden or abrupt. It is unhurried fluid motion that drifts, emphasizing new relations and possibilities."

Giving Light

gouache on watercolor paper, 6" x 8", May 7, 2021, Not For Sale

"Without the sun, the world would be shrouded in darkness and cold. It is that reason as to why every once a year the guardian must go on an odyssey to replenish the sun’s life and keep it alive for another year. She travels over the tallest and most treacherous mountains to reach the gateway where the sun shines the brightest. Once there, she holds up her staff where the energy shines up through the gateway and to the sun, replenishing it’s life force for another year until the day come where she must go on the journey again. In this world the sun represents light and hope and it is the guardian’s job to keep that hope alive even when circumstances seem grim and obstacles get in the way. Just like the guardian keeping the sun alive, we must keep the light in our lives alive and never give up hope no matter how bad things may seem."

Here's the Story

mixed media painting on canvas, 5" x 4" x 0.75", 2020, $250

"This painting comes from the artist’s 2020 body of work, under the moniker ‘Strangest Part Of All’. The title of this 5 in x 4 in work playfully speaks to the fact that the artist’s visual content is jam-packed and rendered very visible. It’s an instance of something that doesn’t refrain from working beyond the scope of its small scale."

"I use my artwork as a way to explore the relationships between object and user. I see this as a way to bring importance and recognition to objects that have played an important role in our lives but are undervalued and would otherwise be forgotten, overlooked, or discarded. My mother was an avid collector of seashells. This comes from her collection."
