I like the range of possibilities collage allows. Using paper; commercial, billboard scraps, printed matter, I can express the formal qualities of  a painting. Pattern, color, texture, shape and line can be manipulated with a freedom of expression I  have not found in any other medium. 

My collages are small, inviting the viewer to approach them on an intimate level. Their subject matter ranges from figures in interior and domestic spaces, a fantasy “housing market” as well as text compositions, appropriated from billboard advertisements and  graphically reconfigured, out of context.

In the woodblock medium, I combine carving, drawing, and imagining into a printmaking process that both recollects family histories and allows me to represent them in my own language. The graphic linearity of these black and white compositions reflect the cutting and gauging technique of sculpting a basswood surface, while the effect is a considerable transformation of the image.
