My work contains different styles from Cubist to Surrealist abstraction. Collage has been central to my creative process since I first started making art. Along with collage, much of my work includes painting and drawing. Each element of paint or charcoal or graphite or collage offers its own unique qualities to the work. Each in turn is manipulated, altered, and sometimes reapplied. The resulting images with their colors, lines, and textures stimulate the eye and are often reminiscent of distressed and weather-worn art from the street. I have often worked in a representational style, but lately, I move in and out of abstraction, which offers more creative potential and a wide array of expressive and interpretive possibilities.
