I can't remember ever not doing Art. As a kid I spent hours and hours coloring, cutting and pasting, and eventually started to draw and do the paint by numbers kits by the dozens. One Christmas my Uncle gave me the most wonderful wooden chest full of tubes of oils, brushes, palettes, and canvases. I immediately started painting - my most favorite and best pieces were the religious pieces I proudly gave to my church. Unfortunately, years later they had a fire and everything was lost. I also had a camera at a young age and was always taking pictures. In school I loved working with pastels and even did a few balsa wood sculptures which ended up in the schools glass display cases. Later I discovered the wonderful art of collage and the rest is history.
Now, I carry my camera with me all the time, and have several collage projects in various phases. I love sharing my art and learning new techniques.
I hope you enjoy my work - comments and constructive criticism are always welcome!!
