I acquire a lot of my re-cycled tin at second-hand stores, friends and family save tin for me, and I am guilty of food choices based on packaging. Sometimes you just have to eat the Belgian chocolate to get the tin. [should put that on a t-shirt]
I make 3-D mixed-media collage using a variety of re-cycled materials. The short list includes food tins, plywood, magazines, old books, bottle caps, hardware, circuit boards, wire, and things picked up in parking lots.
The figures [Josephines] are made of papier-mache and found and re-purposed objects. I like to use teak salad bowels or tomato cages. Or maybe glass bottles or clock parts. I like starting with junk and transforming it completely.
I like puns
I like junk
I like kitsch
