Using the discards of everyday life, my work calls attention to our social systems. Recent work comes on the heels of several series beginning after the 2008 financial crisis focusing on the economy and currently to women in/as the economy. Through the physical layering of form and color I compose my work primarily using receipts (found, my own, or from staged collections) as the establishing groundwork for each collage.
