My current work further explores interests in chance, impulse, and interruptions through the lens of cut and paste collage. Collage is my natural springboard for irreverent, reckless and silly decisions which yield detached yet inevitable unions of form. Images are appropriated from found print media, ephemera, as well as my own drawings, paintings, and other divergent investigations.
