Received into the collection for the 2009 exhibition Thinking Inside of the Box

My box assemblages range from nostalgic to political statements to downright bizarre.  In addition to box assemblages, I have for many years worked in collage, in the form of postcards, envelopes, and pins.

I maintain an ever-expanding collection of the materials that I gather.  Sometimes I’ll build an idea around one piece while other times I’ll come up with the idea and then search for the pieces to make it work.  Whatever my final intent, the works all start as bits and pieces of old photos, cigar boxes or old drawers, old paper, or ephemera, such as letters, tickets, and just about anything that catches my eye as I scour yard sales, antique shows, flea markets, and even the toy departments of modern stores for raw materials.

Artist Statement
 I started making collages while still a student at the Art Students League in NY, and continued the practice while on a Fulbright Grant in Italy, and during a summer when I lived in San Francisco. I utilized the different papers that I found in these locations. Collage allows me to make art when I am traveling and don’t have access to a studio.
When I was doing large scale acrylic paintings I often added rice paper to my canvas. Recently, I have been working primarily in paper collage and artist’s books. I love the variety of materials that can be used in collage. My work incorporates painted, handmade, oriental, and acid free papers, as well as objects, transparent film, boxes, photos, my own prints, maps, string and text. Collage is a discipline in which I can express my ideas on memory, travel, language and nature.
