I am a self taught artist. I try to make my collages take the form of music in its movement and harmony within its structure and color schemes. I tell stories of what I have experienced or attempt to capture the aesthetic and spiritual essence of a moment or embodiment of experience. The manipulation of old magazines, books and image sources allowed me to pull my media from other peoples’ refuse which inspires resourcefulness. Most of my collages are made up of several hundred separate pieces of paper with carefully chosen image, color and structural properties. Although making my collages may take time, I become immersed and allow things to be revealed to me as much as I deliberately construct them. The end product attempts to draw you into it and spend time reciprocally.
