STATEMENT     How do I stumble into the wonderment of the unexpected?  This is my inquiry.  I have often been attracted to children's art with its

honest and pure form of creative expression. Children use visual expression as a natural language, responding to stimuli without judgement and

allowing the art to evolve organically and authentically. This seems to be a universal approach to fresh and honest work. It is also the spiritual language

of non-objecive art. My art work developes as I construct shapes, spaces and material with a dialogue of my inner awareness. This is the shaping of the

concept and it often changes as I stumble into unexpected creative moments. Working with many layers of torn papers gives me a great sense of

freedom and creates a connection with memory and feeling. This connection helps to illustrate my exploratory aesthetic and takes on the challenge of

making collages that are fresh and interesting. It is also, alot of fun!
