Collage Paintings

These works include a variety of materials such as acrylic medium and paint, ink, torn or cut papers, ribbon, string, fabric, wire, glass shards, and other found materials.

Interactive Works

I believe in the power of play at any age. As with my book art, these works were created to offer a physical, responsive experience of aesthetic engagement. Depending on the mood or time of day.

Golden Nest

Because I never grew out of playing with blocks. Each nested tray is a golden rectangle made with acrylic gold interference paint (Golden brand that I weirdly happened to have) and old letter scraps on reinforced paper board.

Largest tray size: 10.5 x 6.5 inches

A Wake on the Beach

This ‘lantern painting’ plugs into the wall and can be enjoyed in a whole different way in a darkened space. It is made with acrylic paint, pieces of glass, shells, pebbles, paper, and ribbons to disguise the wire. The back of the canvas is lined with plexiglass and houses a string of strategically-placed lights.

Canvas size: 23 x 27 x 2 inches

The Last Leaf

Cuts in the canvas combined with a collage of old film negatives created a fiery effect in this lantern painting. Who needs a real fire? Well, I actually love real fire, so I also designed the pictured wall sconces to compliment this piece.

Canvas size: 12 x 28 x 1.5 inches
