I started working with mixed media about 7 years ago as a method of journaling. Eventually, I moved on to creating larger works that, while still personal, were intended for more public viewing. I am drawn to mixed media and collage because I love finding an image in a magazine or advertisement and then appropriating and reworking it to deliver a message that is my own. The pieces posted here are my favorites. Many of them are the result of some experimentation on my behalf either in the process or in the materials.
