A life-long of Southeastern Massachusetts, I am intrigued by the seasons and variation in landscape in New England. I work in collage because I enjoy the process and tactile experience involved with assembling to create while appreciating the forgiveness and immediacy of collage. I use various kinds of paper and paint them to create or accentuate their natural texture. Incorporating branches that I have collected into my collages creates dimensionality and an element of the unexpected while combining encaustic painting with collage has brought a distinctive brush mark into my process that I have sought. Resulting in traditional landscapes created in an unconventional way that always invite a second look.
