My childhood memories arrange and rearrange themselves bisecting what is real and what is imagined; I deconstruct and reconstruct these patterns in my art. Mixing metaphors and whimsy, pictures and designs, I combine images – to open doors to the viewer’s imagination and sometimes make a reflective statement. I strive for intrigue and beauty, order and peace. Patterns are pieces of a quilt or a jigsaw puzzle with a great deal of attention paid to making the pieces fit seamlessly in more of a mosaic than classic overlay collage.
In viewing my art, I hope to conjure to a world of make-believe and intrigue with patterns that mesh and stimulate questions, leaving one to wonder.
