My work is a combination of painting and collage. I piece together various papers that I paint, cut into shapes and adhere to birch panel with gel medium and small nails. I add more cut paper pieces and painting to that surface and seal each piece with varnish. I intend for each piece to have a graphic power from a distance and an engaging, delicate quality up close. My influences and sources of inspiration include natural and decorative forms and my love of folk art traditions from quilts to Mexican Retablos.
