I am interested in colorful chaos, and unconscious storytelling. Working primarily with mixed media and magazine collage scraps, I assemble worlds which showcase a busy mind - juxtaposed with a steady hand. The process of creating the work is a continual surrender to "doing without thinking". It is only in the final stages of composition that the conscious mind is asked to participate, and evaluate the choices which led here.
Making art exhilarates, absorbs and even mesmerizes me. When I’m working in the studio, the worries of the world and complications of everyday life disappear. I rely on chance and imagination as I keep my mind open to happy accidents. I am currently interested in the idea of peering through something to view something else, like a curtain. Scraped lines in wet paint reveal a different story beneath.
