Artist's Statement Collecting found images is an obsession
for me. I am inspired by the satisfaction that I get
from combining paint with images torn from magazines
and newspapers and giving them new life. Painting is
a daily ritual for me and by finishing most of my works
in one sitting I am able to use art as a journal for
my ideas, experiences and memories. There is little
or no planning involved in any of my works, rather they
develop specifically through the artmaking process.
The narratives become apparent through cutting, pasting
and painting. Making art is a release for me. It is
my hope that others will find humor, calm and wonder
in my images which may then spark their own imaginations.
