ARTIST’S STATEMENT:

My art consists of papier mache sculptures, acrylic paintings, cut paper collages, fabric wall pieces, and photomontages. Much of it involves the use of recycled materials, such as beads, sequins, buttons, gift wrap paper, and found objects. I am interested in transforming ordinary materials and objects into something new, with an emphasis on pattern, color, and form. Some of my art makes a strong statement about an aspect of our society. All of it gives the viewer new ways to see or think about the world and hopefully, to see beauty where it has been overlooked.
