Introduction I love hunting through thrift stores and salvage yards to find inspiration for my pieces. In most cases, I don’t know exactly what I’m looking for, but I know when I’ve found it because of the little jolt of excitement that I feel when I see it. It’s fun to find items that have been cast off because they are no longer beautiful or useful to their original owner, and give them a new identity. Once I sit down to start an altered piece, I feel like I am solving a puzzle as I try to fit parts together into a cohesive whole. My finished pieces feel "real" to me in the Velveteen Rabbit sense of the word.
