Creating figurative assemblages from found objects with a particular interest in using
materials from historic sites. Ann has collected barrels and boxes full of scrap metal, wood,
ceramic, paper, glass, and plastic from the ground, from under old houses, from the
river, and from deserted mill buildings. Her friends and neighbors contribute toward
cleaning up the environment by donating their discards to me in piles on my front porch.
Many of her works are focused on “save-the-earth” or “celebrating earth” themes,
and often include globes or maps. Ideas often spring from song lyrics or titles or from the
various found objects themselves. Using wood, metal,plastic, glass shards, and LOTS of
screws, bolts, Apoxy Sculpt, Liquid Nails, and epoxy glue.
