In 2000, I quit my insurance day job and resumed an artistic journey that had begun many years earlier when I was a child. As I took art classes and explored my creative options, I discovered a love (ok, maybe an obsession) for collage and painting.

As my interests grew, I felt pulled toward life's discarded objects....paper items ripped and torn; old photos abandoned by their owner; shredded bits of lace. I find it so rewarding to give these things a "new life" of artistic beauty. My pieces are all highly layered and tell a story that merges past and present. I feel that we are all more similar than different and my work is a celebration of this idea.
