Visual and physical bits and bobs are collected throughout each day, a shiny button found on the street, some bric a brac lying on a counter, a ceramic animal figurine on a store shelf, a beautiful color clipped from a magazine, and so on; they are all collected and woven together in my paintings to create simple little charms.  One charm/painting will be meant to keep you safe, another to wish you luck on a future errand.  All of the paintings have a mystical purpose wrought from simple objects that exist in the lovely corners of our world and minds.
