Mediums: Painting, Drawing, Printmaking, Collage

Title of Donated Work: Hotel de L' Universe, 2002, Collage

Inspiration for my collage work includes my interests in history, language, and the early 20th century work of Kurt Schwitters. I've always seen Collage as a good vehicle for mystery, so I like to include fragments of text, often in many different languages and writing systems, so that the end result leaves the viewer excavating the work for meaning.
