Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website. 


I create collages using paper, colored pencil, marker, pastel, paint, chalk, tape, and photographs that I take with my phone or camera. My art style is primarily realism, but there's something askew about it. I think of it as enchanted realism, located at the intersection of reality, dreams, wishes, and memories. 


I've been influenced by Henri Rousseau, who set out to reproduce the world photographically and ended up creating a world of enchantment; by Romare Bearden, Jacob Lawrence, Marc Chagall, Brian Kershisnik, Della Wells, Eric Fischl, and Edward Hopper; by Alice Hoffman and Dara Horn; and by many other artists, writers, and musicians.  See my collages, drawings, photographs, and furniture in the Gallery.
