Art gives me the freedom to express myself. I’m not always good with words, but give me ephemera, paint, glue sticks, sharp scissors, scalpels, acrylic matte medium, and embellishments and I am busy for hours dreaming on paper.
I am inspired by antique books that are profusely illustrated with engravings, handmade and artist papers, maps, old photographs, unusual texts and old foreign scripts. The old books are splotchy with age and often smell like my grandmother’s basement – nothing that a little fresh air and sunlight can’t cure. These are the makings of my art.
I can’t always explain what my creations signify. They evolve from something that inspires me, and I hope ultimately becomes significant to the beholder. Something magical happens – a kind of communication between artist, artwork and viewer that is personal and satisfying.
Yes, I want viewers to love my art, admire my imagery, composition, humor, sense of color, my precision with scissors and scalpel, paste and paint, and attention to detail. But I make art because it is my form of meditation. It makes me feel whole, heard and content.
