I have always been drawn to things unusual and quirky. Antique or vintage items with colorful graphics, flaked paint, worn patina. Well-loved toys from the past, household items that have long-since been replaced by hi-tech versions, love letters actually written in pen and ink, hardware salvaged from a centuries-old home. Some items strike a chord within me, like a long-lost childhood memory.

I have scoured estate sales, flea markets, auctions and antique stores and use the cool and unusual items I have found to create these one-of-a-kind “Bots”. Each Bot is lovingly crafted using bolts and screws so that they are sturdy and will last for years to come.
