The collage work you see here begins with a memory an experience or just an intention. My process soon unfolds into the integration of geometric and organic forms using the elements of texture and color. Each piece begins with layers of bold pastels that create the foundation of the work. I then cut and play (as with a puzzle) with handmade papers hand-sculpted wire and any other found objects that may find their way into the work. For me the combination of the rich texture of handmade paper with the purity of color inherent in pastels gives my work purpose and reveals my soulful spirit. Upon the completion of each piece they matted and framed. Each piece is original and one of a kind.
