There are repeated formal elements in my work along with the creation of my impression of what is real, a dream, an abstraction, or a combination of all these things that together give momentum to my art. I believe that, as an artist, my position in society is much the same as a shaman; that is, to reveal or divine what is hidden right before our eyes.  I seek to either fill a void in the viewers’ mind or open them to new perceptual challenges.  Collage is my preferred method for making this happen. Using acrylic paints and mediums, I produce works of canvas on canvas, repurposed materials on canvas, assemblages as well as watercolor collages.  ​
