Artist Statement
Collage gives me the freedom to follow where Imagination leads.
Hardware, bits of sandpaper, old floppy discs, semi-precious gemstones: If such disparate materials produce the result I want, I am free to use them (...and I have). Collage doesn't constrain my imagination.

I invite viewers to join with me in the creative process by using their imagination to complete the "backstory" of my works.
[The viewer's imagination would have more latitude if I used serial numbers rather than titles, but many viewers think works without titles are unsettling. Therefore I give titles, but they are often cryptic or sketchy.]

I find joy and satisfaction in using my imagination. I hope your imagination finds joy in creating its own interpretations.
