Artist’s Statement

I create fine art from reused images and repurposed paper.  With recycled magazines, scissors, and glue, I create visual representations of places I’ve been and items I’ve seen.    By focusing on the interconnectedness of the patterns, colors, and shapes of each cut piece, I approach a collage as a puzzle designed to slowly reveal a larger message.

Too often people obsess over one event or consequence in their lives, instead of seeing how it fits into the totality of their experiences.  As in life, one could concentrate too closely on any one piece of my collage, thus hindering the ability to view the total image, that big picture.   Art judges and critics often point out that my collages look good both up close and at a distance; if so, then I have been successful at presenting my view of life through my art.

    But there are times when right in the middle of a music piece you are moved to stay and shout. You should see me now after reading this piece by you….
