Most of my works are rooted and conceived through my life experiences on and around the water. Much of my work incorporates pieces of the Jersey Boardwalk where I grew up along with bits of boats that I’ve had, which is truly the soul of my work. I consider myself an eco-artist, incorporating many found objects: fabric pieces, eroding metals, sea debris, random pieces from my life, plastics, old strips of my own artwork, etc. I try to recreate a moment, a meaningful time - with a current adaptation. I recycle my thoughts, my life and my work, while alleviating my burden on our oceans and landfills. Up cycling seems the natural progression for me because of my love of the sea and using materials that are symbolic of our interaction with our environment.
