Artist Statement

I started off as a fiber artist, doing quilts and traditional hooked rugs. A few years ago I took a class in painted paper collage, and was immediately hooked. I started my current work making collages from handpainted papers, both new and and repurposed. A collage comes together way faster than a quilt or hooked rug, so the satisfaction of a completed work is more immediate. I find beauty in old bus schedules, discarded maps, used books. Paper ephemera gets painted, stamped, stenciled, and turned into a mixed media collage. The result is something new and beautiful made from repurposed material - transformation and rebirth of an art piece.
