Leave me with a smile

The Skies will seem so blue

Artist Statement

Mixed media and collage provide me with the opportunity to combine what are often separate ideas and images into a more complex arrangement of my own personal expression. Old player piano music rolls, carefully chosen for their words, provide the background “music” for my drawings, writings, colors and textures. Sometimes I include contemplative figures who themselves seem to absorb the words that surround them either from the songs or my journaled words. 

My works communicate fragility and peace at the same time.
