The use of collage is my inquiry into the mysteries of life on Earth. As a mixed media and collage artist, I am curious about the similarities and differences of human and nature, especially how nature serves as an analogy to human experience. I use a variety of mediums to convey the feeling and emotion of my subjects, to reflect the movement of their lives and the strength of their inner resolve. Using a variety of papers, words, shapes, photographs, and paint, I create and juxtapose images to emit the personality of the subject invite the view to actually construct the story using the media as clues. Many viewers are delighted to see themselves within the images that they view in the artwork.
