Artist Statement- To create art, I take graphic images, printed words, or other elements that find there way into my life: piece of ticket stub, receipts, tags from clothes, wrappings, internal workings of machines or trash found in the street and combine these elements with photos and symbols on paper to form a collage, mixed medium style. Media used in creation range from but not limited to: stains, graphite pencil, acrylic paint, charcoal, ink, chalk. Over all image of work usually represents man made environment and or nature. Elements or forms in artwork are placed in such a way as to create flow/ eye movement, energy/ relationship between marks, lines, photos, objects.
