Yes, I admit it: I am addicted big time! To flea markets and garage sales. How can any one not like them? When I need inspiration for my art I am going to the flea market or check some garage sales or if it’s the middle of the week – thrift stores are my target. Every item I see starts a new creative process in my head. This photo is an example of an artwork (an assemblage titled "The India Box") where I used parts and pieces that I found around the area where I live. We have a very rich mixture of cultures and I love the colors and textures that they provide.
