Artist Statement:

I love paper. I love touching paper and the meditative quality of cutting paper.

While assembling the various pieces that make up my collages I get great pleasure from the process of trying to marry different images and mediums together and watching the work unfold. Consciously, I have an idea of where I want the work to go but my unconscious is undisputedly the one in charge. I am often surprised at where the work takes me. My original ideas tend to morph into something quite unexpected and that strikes me as magical.

The whole process of making mixed media art fills me with a sense of peace and tranquility, and has proven a most wonderful vehicle for translating my inner vision to outer reality.
