The term "found object art" has so many meanings.  For my sculptures I prefer the term "trash art" because I work specifically with discarded objects.  The beauty of trash art is that it asks us to see commonplace objects in a new way.  It gives us the opportunity to reconsider the meaning and worth of the most mundane aspects of our lives. 
I work by combining objects, both real and digital.  I combine actual discarded objects to create sculptural forms.  In digital art I combine bits of stock photos to create a new image.  
My digital images are derived from photography.  I usually begin an image by sampling many free stock photos which I then combine with digital drawing, painting and manipulation. Examples of sites specializing in images without copyright restrictions are Pixabay and Morguefile.  I would especially like to thank all the photographers who make their work available to the public.  Below are listed many stock photographs I have used in the creation of my images (links are provided where they are working).
