I am a collage artist, layering my own (and vintage) photographs to tell imaginary histories. Slowly stitching with linen fabric, embroidery floss, and photo transfers allow me to make up stories about the people, buildings, and landscapes that I’ve collaged.

This same contemplative process informs my encaustic photo collages (although the process is quicker). I machine stitch the inkjet printed images before they are attached to cradled wood panels for additional texture and to reference my love of stitching. Images, printed on Japanese rice papers are added to create depth and subtly hide what lies beneath.
