"The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious."—Albert Einstein, The World As I See It
Mixed media is central to my work, reflecting the richness of life with its textures, layers, and its impurity. The primary techniques I use are collage, photomontage, computer-treatment, and some painting.
Since 1991, I have exhibited in at least one group show each year, enjoyed solo exhibitions, even won awards. I am grateful to and honored by my many collectors and supporters.
I am interested in exploring the connections and space between the conscious and unconscious. My work uses free association to juxtapose images in a dialogue, often invoking stories.
Much of my work over the last few years has revolved around mandalas that I’ve created digitally and then combined with collaged elements (typically “characters” ).
Age-old symbols used in a variety of spiritual belief systems, mandalas represent deeper consciousness. The characters (each chosen for dramatic appeal) interact with or react to the mandalas, to deeper consciousness.
Most recently, I have begun a series of collage works presenting houses and characters in imaginary or incongruous environments. In these works, I see mysterious, enigmatic stories, open to interpretation even when there are words present.
