Inspiration: As an artist, I have always utilized, found, and re-purposed materials. After relocating to Cincinnati, 6 years ago. I began to glean the streets and curbs of Cincinnati using a magnet on a string. Using the found materials. I create portraits which we called "Cincinnati Street People". The majority of Roebling's face, parts of the bridge and outline were all constructed from the nails.
