• My studio practice is deeply rooted in painting and merges 2D and 3D elements of collage, assemblage, and mixed media. I use various techniques to engage with ideas on abstraction and possibilities with materials, surfaces, and form. I collect fragments, found objects, cardboard, packaging, magazines, CD sleeves, paper, plastic, and wood. Bits of torn paper, stencils, and studio ephemera merge with gestural marks and geometric forms on and off the painting's border. I paint, layer, and arrange new and repurposed materials, hinting at the process and stages of the work's making. I wish to establish a dialogue around my work that evokes a sense of play and discovery while conjuring up concepts of chance and mutability.
