I have been working in collage for the past ten years.
Each of my collages is unique—the outcome of creating and
manipulating puzzle-like elements that I combine to form my artwork.
I am most inspired by the relationship of color and shape and
tension and balance and translate these juxtapositions to my surfaces
using a palette of handmade paper, magazine and book images,
text, ink, paint and other fragments.
My collages are products of my imagination. The end results are
graphic images, "paintings in paper," that are both serious and playful.
