Now based in New York City, I have lived abroad for the past four years, traveling extensively in England, continental Europe, Africa and the Middle East. During this time I have gathered unusual papers, both found and purchased, collected other ephemera and made rubbings to document my experiences and use in my mixed media art works.
Much of my work is influenced by Surrealism as well as the Dada movement, since I subscribe to many of the existential, coincidental and paradoxical tenants of these art movements.
Collage and mixed media are appealing since they allow the re-assembling of reality to suit my whims. I can easily re-invent, construct and deconstruct the world around me. I use many of their automatic and experimental techniques relying on chance and intuition to arrive at an image.
