home about the artist galleries article & book contact
 

  I find material for my collages everywhere. Working in this medium has allowed me to see the beauty of the discarded and turn it into art.

  My images have two different manifestations. Some are internal, elusive and suggestive. Others are external, dynamic and engaged. They reflect my reality, which encompasses both

  I have been inspired by the work of Kurt Schwitters, regarded by most as the 20th century master of collage. He once said, "How I use the material is often more important than the material itself." This attitude is also reflected in my creative process.
