With a background in Visual Merchandising + Window Display, my creative journey has been varied. My love of collage came from experimenting with several mediums over the decades. Within this genre, I have found there are wide parameters for exploration and play, overlapping with many mediums. A love of paper, mark making, contrast and texture are important elements in my work, influenced by simplicity and seeking beauty in the ordinary.
