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.

I like to work with a person until they are no longer themselves, but become a character, or even a prop. Although my work draws influence from photographic techniques, I don't consider myself a photographer in the traditional sense. I am interested in the physical hands on approach that painting and printmaking can embrace, which can go beyond the digital process and beyond the chemical process that photography offers.
