I build carefully crafted art from the common debris of our city.

I make a range of things, from furniture to collage to installations. My most recent work, 'Who Do You Love, Who Do You Fear" is a set of six collage portraits installed in the windows of Cumaica Coffee in the Excelsior. These are portraits of people killed because they evoked fear in others. This fear resulted in fatal violence. These gentle portraits are done in tissue paper laid onto the back of translucent berry boxes.
