I use paper, colored pencil, marker, pastel, paint, chalk, tape, and my photographs to create collages. I also experiment with photography by combining parts of different photographs into one photograph. My style in both collage and photography is realism, more or less, but there's something askew about it. I call it enchanted realism, located at the intersection of dreams and reality.
I've been influenced by Henri Rousseau, who set out to reproduce the world photographically and ended up creating a world of enchantment, and by other visual artists, writers, and musicians. See my collages, photographs, drawings, and illustrated reclaimed furniture in the Gallery. I also write fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction, some of which has been published in print and online literary journals and anthologies. My three children's picture books were published by Shanti Press. See more information on my writing in Publications.
