I have been working with found objects for over 15 years, gluing and attaching pieces together to build animals, people and food sculptures. I work in mostly plastics collected from my life and also my family and friends who know what I do and hate to create waste.
My collections are kept organized and purged until a project presents itself, sometimes the materials dictate the piece otherwise I make do with what I have.
When a piece is finished finding placement for it is a great challenge. If it is suitable for the outdoors I keep it on display at the gardens where I work. Otherwise, sculptures are kept in my apartment, my moms condo or in a dark finished basement with cave crickets awaiting the next show.
