I create my collages on matboard or furniture using paper, colored pencil, marker, pastel, paint, chalk, fabric, and photographs that I take. My art style is realism, more or less, but there's something askew and symbolic about it. I think of it as enchanted realism, located at the intersection of reality and dreams or 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 the artists Romare Bearden, Jacob Lawrence, Marc Chagall, Brian Kershisnik, Della Wells, and Edward Hopper; by the writers Alice Hoffman and Dara Horn; and by many other artists, writers, and musicians.
