I LOVE JUNK! My assemblage pieces consist of found objects and treasures collected during my travels, bought at garage sales or given to me by friends. This body of work reflects on travel and tools of the trade from Canada to Mexico.
Mexico is one of my favourite countries and is where the women introduced me to the Virgen de Guadalupe. I am not religious but I love the relationship the Mexicans have with her which is intertwined with their day to day lives and work.
I have also observed the loss of certain trades and artistic practices. Fishing, building and textile work have all changed greatly from the use of hand tools to high tech machinery and factories. I want to honour the hand made.
