My background

For many years I've been collecting ephemera and odd objects that have accumulated in my home in various piles and sometimes an actual vignette.  I began assembling these usually aesthetically connected items into collages, which has evolved into illuminated boxes.  I derive a great deal of satisfaction in connecting the disparate into harmony, uniting two entirely different things into something that suddenly has a natural logic.

My experience

I have a broad history in retail with an emphasis on Visual Merchandising and Display.  Working at Urban Outfitters was a sort of creative bootcamp that spawned some of my appreciation for certain aesthetics.  Throughout the 90's I participated in Juried Craft shows with my enterprise "Lallygaggin" which emphasized home furnishings made from architectural cast offs.  That business eventually morphed into a retail shop in Boston called "Shelf Life."  And now by day I work as Retail Services Manager for a major hospital.
