Nothing gets my heart pumping and my creative juices flowing better than stumbling upon a vintage find. Be it an old an weathered piece of sheet music or a gently loved bauble from days gone by. I find mysef scouring thrift shops and yard sales for these little treasures because I know that I will create something so much more than what is staring back at me. Collage art, junk jewelry, and vintage ephemera all appeal to me. Bottle caps and glass tiles dance through my dreams at night and the morning light sees me into the studio where I will cut and paste my way to creating the perfect vignette. These are the simplest of joys that bring me peace and contentment.
