Welcome to Boxworkstudio!
I have been exploring “Found Art” since 2007. Of all the various forms of artistic expression I have attempted throughout my life, I find this to be the most freeing and satisfying.
I have always felt the need to tell a story in my creative process. The objects themselves indicate to me what the narrative will be.
It is so exciting to take disparate objects like a child’s toy, a scrap of wood, or an old piece of jewelry, and experience that “ah-ha” moment when they transform into a vital element in a story of morality, beauty, spirituality, and more.
I may give the observer hints as to the stories that lie within through the titles of my work, but am happiest when people make their own connections for themselves. There is no “right or wrong” way to interpret these pieces.
I hope you will become engaged in the little worlds I have set before you. Have fun!!!
