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, 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.
