For nearly twenty years I have been creating mixed media collage paintings that transport outside elements to interior spaces.  Through my paintings, I strive to create an environment, capture a moment, and share an experience.  I use texture to build a surface that is structural, atmospheric and tactile.  Beautiful papers from around the world are collected, cut, and layered within my paintings like a tapestry.  Sophisticated color palettes are combined with botanical undertones to create paintings that remind us of the peace and beauty around us and within us.
