I'm a magazine collage artist, which means my collages are painted with ripped and cut bits of paper from magazines. The main subjects of my art reflect my love of animals and the everyday experiences that comprise my middle-aged, mid-west suburban life like coffee, wine and flowers.
My work has won several awards and I've been featured on PBS, Fox8, WKYC, and various other media and publications.
