I am a self-taught mixed media artist living in the Charleston area.
My art grew from photos of family relatives my grandmother gave me. Inspired, I wanted to tell their stories. Armed with a shared family history, I began down the path I am on today.
I have moved from family photographs to discarded snapshots discovered at estate sales and antique stores who have found their way into my art.
I enlarge the people found in vintage photos and place them on a mixed media background created by means of texture, paint, acrylic mediums, ink, charcoal and ephemera.
I see myself as a storyteller, giving new life to the people left behind in these vintage photos.
