I was recently contacted by a lovely woman (named “Liz”) from Utah who wrote to inquire about a rather large piece of framed art she had rescued from someone’s trash, that she believed to be one of my works. Initially my heart sank at the thought of any artist’s work facing such a fate, but at the same time I was thankful for observant art lovers like Liz who saved the work from certain landfill extinction.
Liz filled me in on the details of her find, writing that she had discovered the art one rainy day in 2014 on her way to church, saving it before any rain had damaged the art. She later packed it up for a move from Pennsylvania to Utah in 2018 when she & her family relocated. She loved the artwork & it was a special reminder of all their time living in PA. She also provided me with photos of the once homeless Pen & Ink drawing that took up residence in her home, in hopes I could provide the story behind it.
