I am attracted to rusted scrap metal that I find while traveling the West.
Wall hanging made with driftwood, rusted window screne and rusted tin can lids.
These cute little rusted tins decorated with bottle caps are great for holding just about anything from pencils to make-up.
I pick up broken glass everywhere I go, old and new.  This is a combination of an old tin, bottle and broken glass with bead embellisments.
When I find old rusted bailing and fence wire I like to twist them into Anisazi images.

I am an Artist that uses many mediums to create Junk Art Sculptures.  All of my supplies are gathered from dumpsites I happen upon while traveling the West.  Eco Art is a passion of mine and I love to recreate with found objects.
