One of a Kind Small Works

As a mixed media artist, I have a passion for creating collage and assemblage using just about any tangible item that looks interesting to me. Before I even knew there was a word for it, I began repurposing materials into my art. As an outsider artist, I am largely self taught using painting, printmaking, and assemblage techniques in my work.

My art represents a desire to express my world view with all of its challenges, beauty, and grace. A constant subtext across my work is that in the end we are all just humans and therefore vulnerable to the trials of the human condition. I challenge myself to choose media and materials that will best express the narratives and emotions that I want to evoke. In terms of my favorite art supplies or materials, anything and everything is a potential source, particularly interesting and intriguing found objects.
