My work with collage is an ongoing journey into discovery. I focus on creating a landscape of balance and energy. Relying on intuition, I tell a story by assembling order out of chaos, using color as the main vehicle. Chance can play a large role in the construction of the work and can at times take me into upredictable directions.
I approach sculpture in much the same way. Spontaneity is the foundation, and through a process of elimination the work is created. As the work begins to speak, I am then able to take the sculpture through the necessary stage to where I feel it takes on a life of its own.
