Artist Statement:‘I work primarily in mixed media collage and found object assemblage.
I use pop culture advertising posters torn from buildings in Seattle, London, San Francisco, Miami and New York City. I like to use the garish, colorful adverts and paper fragments in a painterly way and often the image themselves pull me off in unexpected ways.
I really enjoy the spontaneity and sometime frustration of collage: the losing of some cool image to something cooler, or something that just works better.
I am influenced by street art, graffiti murals, wheat pastes, tags and stickers. Influences also include Robert Rauschenberg, Max Ernst and Romere Bearden and, lately, Judith Supine and Michael Anderson.’
