I collect objects that later become part of my art: wooden toys, feathers, corks, chopsticks, buttons, beads, hardware, car parts, wire, aluminum cans, a bird nest from a miniature pine forest in Kauai, seashells, and once, a skin shed from a six-foot long snake.

With Panel Series I created small tableau assemblages that speak to each other. I use driftwood to weave the pieces together and I add color to the bleached branches and fist-shaped knots even though doing it feels almost sacrilegious: the driftwood is intrinsically so beautiful.
