I love working with tools. I have a passion for rusty junk and have a staggering collection of old tins. This assortment, using recycled vintage metal, wood and an occasional found object, is titled: Lovely Bugs, Nautical Souvenirs and Watchful Eyes. It was inspired by the diverse colors and forms found in butterflies, moths and insects. The traditions and symbology of vintage sailor’s tattoos, and a curiosity of the mystical world
I picked up my pens and pencils again about 3 years ago after a very long absence. I like to draw and doodle. And I like to share. So here you are some of the results. I hope you enjoy them. Phil
*My shadowbox frames are purchased at local thrift shops and refurbed and repainted and reused.
This is the third time that I’ve shown work at the Lighthouse during a January. I use these small shows to try out new things that I haven’t had the opportunity to do before. These figures are roughly based on small sketches and then interpreted with scraps of reclaimed wood which gives them an abstract quality that I enjoy.
