My art is steeped in the rich tapestry of collage and mixed media, drawing on the deep well of
artistic history to inform my vision. I delve into the realm of color, form, and energy, blurring the
boundaries between mediums and disciplines, seeking to see the world in new and unexpected
The world around me is my greatest inspiration, evoking feelings and emotions that I strive to
capture in my work. I often incorporate found objects, such as clippings and images from
magazines, news headlines, and articles in various languages, to create a connection to the
larger world. I believe it is vital to leave room for individual interpretation and to create a space
for the viewer to engage with my work on their own terms.
Through the years, I have honed an artistic eye that finds beauty and potential in the overlooked
and an intuitive awareness of precisely where to place these elements in my work. My collage
process is intuitive, much like the act of cooking a meal. Like a chef experiments with different
flavor combinations, I enjoy experimenting with materials, textures, and colors, improvising with
the formal elements of a piece of art until I sense that it is complete, and it speaks to something
essential about the human experience.
