Artist Statement

These drawings are hand-made, intricately cut-out and carefully layered together using a variety of adhesives.  In combination with collage which I cull from a variety of sources, I use pencil, enamel, acrylic and gouache on mostly mylar.  I am continually fascinated by the both the differences and similarities of species and look for parallels often combining elements in the creation of some strange new hybrid. An arm becomes the stem of a flower, feet become the claws of a bird, the head of a beetle becomes the torso of a woman.  I look for unexpected combinations as a way to re-interpret phenomena or suggest new possibilities.
