“Collaged elements, many cut out of older abstract paintings, mutate or evolve into fictional beings, vaguely animal, bird, insect, or human. These creatures play, converse, attract or repel one another visually and emotionally across the spaces between them, reminding us of how we interact with one another, our fellow creatures, and the world at large. The settings in which these “conversations” occur reflect a response to, and a concern for, the natural environment. In addition to collage, transfer print techniques play a major role in my work. Art is all about transformation and it’s the process that gets us there. Where, exactly, that turns out to be is often a surprise.”
