Deborah Kracht is a mixed media artist living in central Massachusetts.
"I can't remember a time when I wasn't an artist. In most of the pictures from my childhood I am either covered in paint or building something. Things haven't changed much over the years, only the materials I use are different. Like many visual artists, I am a scavenger of objects and a saver of bits. My current work seeks to rescue and reinvent objects which are broken or have outlived their purpose. In doing so I satisfy my love of the treasure hunt by going to flea markets, estate sales and auctions, using my finds to make art instead of just hoarding interesting bits. I go without preconceived notions, never looking for specific pieces. Instead I let the objects dictate the direction of the work, sometimes the pieces come together quickly, and often they must wait until I find the next perfect part."
