I’m a mixed media artist and craftswoman living in Fort Collins, Colorado. Through the use of discarded materials, I enjoy creating contemporary artifacts and encouraging the viewer to pause to see the beauty in the seemingly mundane. Like a treasure hunt for my palette, I forage cans from gutters, sidewalks, trash cans and recycling bins. Inspired by ancient mosaics and other pixelated media, I appreciate the meditative processes of dismantling, sorting, and sewing can fragments onto the burlap as I watch the images evolve. In addition to my mosaics, I also create bags and accessories by repurposing materials through Junipurse. Below you will find a brief video showing the making of one of my pieces. Enjoy!
