VISUAL ARTIST – Wood, Paper, Painting, Drawing, MIxed Media, Poetry, Fiction, Screen Writer

"I consider myself a serious artist whose goal is to be a part-time or full-time established professional artist."

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF WORK:

My Collage Method
I make original designs from colored and patterned papers. My mixed-media collages are made from numerous paper fragments, used in such a way that their original context is not recognized, then detailed with acrylic paint and ink. What may look like a simple painting is actually a composite of dozens of photographs which I have cut up, rearranged, carefully matched, and pieced together to create an original composition of my own design.

Framing
I use my skills as a carpenter to protect my artwork in custom frames. I build these frames entirely of upcycled materials- including the glass, which I cut to the necessary dimensions.
