“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.” – Pablo Picasso

Storytelling

I love the hands-on exploration and discovery of collage and assemblage that inevitably leads to surprise juxtapositions along the way. I especially enjoy the tactile aspect of collage, the arrangement and rearrangement of elements that take me down unexpected paths. I draw inspiration from my family history, my travels and hikes, and my sketchbooks.

Collage

Collage

For me, Collage is about the arrangement and juxtaposition of disparate elements into a new connected whole. Each collage tells a second story that its parts alone would not be able to impart. I love this discovery.
Sketchbook

Sketchbook

In-the-Instant collages. The point is to work quick and small. I carry around a few envelopes of scrap papers left over from larger projects and use these scraps and a glue stick to "sketch" in my visual poetry exercise book.
Photography

Photography

Texture, pattern and collections. I look for collage in nature and the city street.
