Being a mixed media artist gives me the opportunity to use my favorite materials, wood, paint, metal, paper, anything really.  I feel too limited working in one medium.  I also love transforming old & discarded finds which I consider treasures.  This is when I get to do what I really enjoy, which is re-purposing my treasures.  Growing up I saw my father reuse materials for his many projects.  I was always fascinated by his ability to see a new use for things.  I believe this opened my eyes to the endless possibilities of materials.  Being able to create a piece of art out of so many mediums gives me a great sense of satisfaction. – Cynthia Axelberd
