I am a collector and a maker. A collector of old books, photographs, letters, journals, boxes
- the left behind. And a maker. In an old forgotten box that once held someone's forks and knives, I reconnect pieces and create a new story. An unexpected something beyond words. To combine the discarded is a journey of composing-to take the cast aside and to see afresh. Seeing, interpreting, connecting, and making allows me briefly to touch balance. Casting back the quiet into an image.
