She is a member of the Midwest Collage Society. Fusing traditional art principles with exploratory techniques and materials I tackle the unexplored foot paths of contemporary artwork. This instinctual process allows me to create a unique connection with each work of art expressing a glimpse into the complex layers of experience and emotion that lay the framework of my life. Creating complex transparent layers with cold wax medium and collage I can achieve a depth in my work allowing elements to push and pull the viewer by using soulful marks and energetic colors that direct my imagination into existence.
