LethaColleen






This Seattle based artist makes one-of-a-kind pieces of art using paper, metals and found objects. I can relate to her work because I've always loved scrounging for rusted bits of metal in old industrial area's. There is a ghost town /abandoned gold mine in Bralorne, British Columbia called Pioneer Mines where we used to go when I was a teenager. I always had my eyes on the ground looking for some treasure or another... never found any gold though!
I like what she says in her profile about finding bits of un-claimed history while shifting through the dearth of human castoffs at flea markets and the like.
I love that idea of reclaiming history and breathing new life into it, thus saving it from the landfill.
