DESTROY+CREATE!
I'm a San Francisco collage artist, former graphic designer, maker of books, art journalist, a strictly-urban city stalker, obsessive proofreader, lover of ampersands & dedicated grammar nazi.

My aim is to destroy & create abstract compositions using torn papers, paint, typography, graffiti, mark-making, found images & secret languages plucked from past civilizations.

Unconcerned with creating beautiful things, I rely on intuition & grope to communicate a rebellious nature by cutting & ripping materials to create bold shapes & texture--often losing control of the process.

I present my work on simple deep canvas or wood panels, unframed.
All my pieces are titled, signed & dated on back of the work.
