My art is an invitation to see beyond the apparent. From a distance, my collages appear to be paintings. Up close, they are complicated jumbles of separate parts. These collages are similar to our own lives; appealing when viewed from afar but somewhat surprising when inspected more intimately.
My use of discarded materials as paint fosters the idea of finding beauty in the overlooked. I discover line, color and form hidden in what others toss away. By transforming magazines, maps and other ephemera into appealing images, I leave a small carbon footprint and more importantly, carve out a trail of enjoyment for others to travel.
