Born in The Pacific Northwest, lived in Washington, Oklahoma and presently California,
I studied drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, philosophy, French, theatre,
printmaking and photography.
My love for collage and the ability to incorporate other mediums began in high school. I have been influenced by Marcel
Duchamp, Joseph Cornell, Cy Twombly, Antoni Tapies, Kurt Schwitters, and Jackson Pollock-to name a few.
My work evokes feelings, thoughts and ideas at the time of conception and during the creative process.
Juxtaposition of thoughts, ideas, objects, color, texture and composition are of prime importance.
