“Sticky fingers and a floor littered with scraps come with the territory. Paper really is everywhere.”

ARTIST STATEMENT

I often describe my collages. as “painting with paper.” The artwork can be impressionistic, abstract or representational and paper, of all sorts, is the prime medium. 

Torn or cut pieces from, but not limited to, magazines, wallpapers, hand-painted papers, and fabrics, supply me with a never-ending source of materials and inspiration for my collages. Sometimes I have a definite idea in mind while at other times a particular pattern, color, or texture lead the way.
