Statement

My artwork has two main focuses; mixed media collage and painting. 

I have always used old maps in my collages and incorporated map based ideas into my art.  In January of 2001 I experimented with a collage using only maps.  The success of the experiment and the resulting piece changed the direction of my work. Much of the map work takes its inspiration from other traditional art forms using repetitive patterns, in particular quilts and other textiles.  In 2009 the patterns used in my collage work started to take on a more painterly appearance.

When I paint, my main focus is Western landscape.  I spend a great deal of time visiting the desert seeking inspiration.

2011 saw the beginning of a new, large-scale piece called the 2011 Project where I created a map of the year. The year was mapped as I created a piece of art on each day of 2011.  The work is made up of 365 individual, mixed media pieces, each 4”x4” (10x10 cm) in size.  The completed pieces will be shown as an installation(s) in 2012.
