Jury - 2021 CHESTER COUNTY STUDIO TOUR
I have always loved art materials from as early as I can remember. This is what has drawn me to mixed media and assemblage. I love the way a paint brush feels in my hand, the richness of color that an oil pastel leaves as I draw it across the paper, the second skin that dried glue leaves on my fingers or the way old letters carry the memories and essence of the people who wrote them.
I utilize vintage paper, hand-printed tissue paper, old letters, maps, found objects, and other ephemera that many people would throw away.
I love people, hearing their stories and discovering some insight into who they have become and how. My artwork often combines my love for people and their stories with using unusual materials and supplies to tell those stories. I try to offer some insight into and curiosity about people and their lives to the viewer.
