Using collage techniques, my work incorporates uncontrolled but planned elements that emphasize the unpredictable within each work. Since they are not edition pieces, I think of the work more as paintings rather than prints. Some of the materials I work with include; glass, wood, Plexiglas, encaustic paint, shellac, pigment stick, powdered graphite, tea, coffee, rust, paprika powder, gold & silver leaf, and enamel paint. Some of the techniques I incorporate are digital phtography and photo-silkscreen printmaking.

I like to work with a person until they are no longer themselves, but become a character, or even a prop. My work plays with the theme of likeness as an ilusive quality, and something that can be pushed and pulled with varying degree. Although my work includes photographic process, I am more interested in the physical hands on approach that painting and printmaking can embrace.
