My collage art intricately blends vintage stories with serene natural scenes, meticulously crafted from torn pieces of handmade papers collected worldwide. Drawing inspiration from Edward Hopper, Joseph Cornell, and Marshall McLuhan, my collages offer fresh perspectives through layered compositions, bridging past narratives with our contemporary culture. Each fine art piece is a reflection of a dedicated exploration into emotions, invoking a sense of place beyond mere visual representation.
Through the fusion of vintage ephemera into bucolic settings, my art aims to transcend the ordinary, inviting viewers into immersive experiences that capture emotions and evoke contemplation. In a world overwhelmed by 'cool media,' my collages serve as havens, encouraging introspection devoid of external influences. Each unique piece of collage art resembles an intricate mosaic, inviting viewers to delve into the detailed layers, unveiling narratives inspired by nature and fostering quiet reflection and emotional resonance.
Based in Maryland, I create in a comfortable riverfront cottage, amidst feline company. Influenced by diverse experiences—racehorses, windsurfing, kite making, and various art mediums—my style culminates in intricate paper collages. My studio is where these varied influences harmonize to shape my detailed and unique fine art creations.
