Artist Statement

In developing my artistic signature over the last two decades my love for ephemera and all things vintage, paper and/or quirky has grown substantially. I create small pieces and individual parts out of papers, fabrics, and threads- treasures and points of interest to my eyes in one way or another- and I assemble them together. Layering these "dots" with other individual pieces and parts with threads and creating unique narratives and compositions is my poetry, my voice.
