I am fascinated
by dreams, fairy tales, mythology and mystical thought.
With my work, I
explore the visions I receive through dreams, the subconscious, and intuition.
I like to put found objects together to see what happens.
I make work in
both 2-and 3-dimensions. I compose, construct, juxtapose and paint. In my
quest, I capture images using photographs (my own and others), drawing and
painting. I use varying scale systems and points of view, employing
image-as-text and text-as-image.
I let these
objects, composed of found and fabricated elements, create their own meanings
