ABOUT THE ARTIST

I am a chef in the Caribbean on a yacht for half of the year and I live in beautiful Lake Tahoe, CA the other half. I grew up in Philadelphia and Virginia and all of these places are a huge inspiration for my collages. Ocean scenes, animals, Hollywood films and Ben Franklin are among my favorite subjects! My mother is an artist so I was able to grow up playing with all of her art supplies and witness what was possible. I received a National art award in high school that led to receiving Marion-Ebertt Wholle Scholarship to get my Fine Art Degree in college. I've been exhibiting my work for over 20 years and moved out west after being accepted into the Artist Residency Program at the Chiricahua National Monument in Arizona where I wrote and illustrated a children's book.

ABOUT THE ART

My collages are made from acid free papers with a variety of glues and acrylic mediums. Wallpaper and handmade papers are among my favorite materials. I am inspired by my surroundings and interests so the subject matter can vary. Each small piece of paper is cut and glued by hand and some of my larger pieces can take over a month to complete. I love making pieces that tell a story and I hide metaphorical easter eggs within each piece. My work has been described as colorfully whimsical with a sense of humor.
