It is my challenge to insert messages about contemporary social and political issues into my pieces. I hope that the work brings some of the contrast of old and new, serious and playful to the viewer. I work with found objects, paper mache and acrylics. My work appears in collections throughout the country. Much of it is done on a commission basis. Inquiries are welcome.
