As an artist, wife, and mother suffocating in “domestic bliss”, my work is embedded with the mundane of everyday life and the relentless messages of “satisfaction guaranteed.” My work begins with post-consumer material diverted from a destiny as trash. Revitalized from the mundane, these recycled tin containers are deconstructed, cut, folded and reassembled into the extraordinary. Often cut with pinking shears, the metal makes a sharp and pointed commentary. Colors, patterns, words and images are chosen specifically for their societal statements and visual impact.
