The domestic space is filled with inspirations. In my home environment, possessions are stacked and saved, washed and stitched, patched together and revitalized. This cacophony of colors, shapes and patterns informs and inspires my studio work.  

Off-kilter piles, repetitive patterns and cluttered surfaces appear in my compositions. Random and energetic arrangements of form are balanced on the picture plane by sparse quiet areas.  

I make oil paintings, mixed media collages, prints and wall sculptures.

I reuse found objects such as polystyrene packaging, junk mail envelopes, cancelled checks, old fabrics, lace, yarn and plastic bread tags in my work to create a narrative about order and disorder, the beautiful and the common. I find a surprising beauty in the mundane – the data, the debris, the evidence of daily life.
