Collages & Assemblage

Inspired by neglected artifacts; I recycle and reuse objects by transforming them into new contexts that comment on the domestic, as well as interior and exterior space. I utilize interdisciplinary methods of printmaking, drawing, painting and collage to build narratives that reference the history of the materials as well as the subjects that they form. Formal interactions of line, shape and color dictate my compositions and juxtapositions of imagery and artifacts. I am fascinated with the stories that objects reveal about their owner. I find spaces that people inhabit curious in the way that they also reveal certain character traits and mannerisms about a person. The materials that I find and collect not only inform the type of work I create, but reference themes and concepts that comment on the human psyche as well.
