I have accumulated, over the years, a vast collection of items I have picked up in parking lots, on streets, on beaches. I never return from a walk without at least one new-found treasure in my pocket. My plan has always been to use the items in collages and assemblages, and I have done so with many of them. Then last year I discovered a large box of little boxes, shallow 5″X7″ boxes, that were left over when we retired and closed Woodsedge. And the new series was born. The unifying factor is the size and the fact that the majority of the elements are found objects. And the fact that they are enormously fun to create.

These are great! It’s always interesting to know a little about the process or the inspiration behind the art.

I LOVE these little boxes. Thanks for using the pilfered Grand Rapids door hardware! I’ll have to tell the original owners of the doors that their junk is now ART! I think I need to try this. I’m on the hunt for small boxes.
