Artist Statement I am a visual artist working in a variety of media including painting, drawing, collage, photography, video, sculpture and installation. All of my work refers back to my early training as a painter and what seems to be my inherent love for the collage aesthetic. I love pulling together what seem to be disparate parts, especially found materials from my everyday life.
I love Gertrude Steins style of writing and fancy John Cage amongst many other artists. I love flocks of birds.
I am constantly grappling with impermanence and the interconnectedness of all of all living plants and beings. Most recently, I've been working with images that continue to reappear in my subconscious - a woman has her knees to the ground, with plants and animals growing out of her - she is in a state of surrender, surrender to a higher force and to the earth.
Currently, I am studying papermaking, book making and printmaking techniques.
