|Stepping away from the traditional way I’ve painted in the past, I’m presently
taking a journey in collage. I want the viewer to see a place or moment in a
fragmented and pieced together way. I spend days preparing collage papers and
planning compositions. Some of my creations are found to be to be quirky &
fun and others, to be moody & thoughtful.
What hasn’t changed in my work is that I’m often driven by the urge to leave
messages in my paintings and though I want viewers to come to their own
conclusions I’m inclined to plant a seed. I’m an eclectic artist and prefer to work
in series so I can transfer my ideas onto the next piece and watch them change
shape and direction. I like paint on my hands and on my clothes, involving
myself entirely in the process.
