This weekend I am exhibiting my work in a beautiful French garden inspired live/work space in the Hayes Valley neighborhood of San Francisco along with my incredibly talented and dear friends, still life watercolorist Diane Divine and digital photo manipulator John A. Nieto.  Together were are participating in the fourth and final 2014 weekend of Artspan's Open Studios tour.  If you are in the SF Bay area and able to drop by Sat or Sun 11/8-9 11am-6pm I'd be delighted to have you as our guest.

Artist | Traditional Art

I have a tendency to personify inanimate objects and feel genuine compassion for those that are damaged or disregarded. I see potential in broken bits and find beauty in rust and erosion. The older an object, the more haunting and alluring its ghost. Collage & assemblage art allows me to indulge these concepts by creating small worlds in a box where tall tales are told, jokes are cracked, emotions stirred, poems imparted and songs are sung.

By using images that replicate the past and objects that authenticate it, my pieces become storytellers, dream interpreters and memory inducers. They are innately lyrical and flicker along to their own silent film. Their dimensional nature and design intend for you to raise an eyebrow and lean in for a closer look.
