About the Work

Through my chalk drawings on vintage collaged book, music, or correspondence pages I take the ideas in these pages and connect them with images their words evoke.

It is informed by my love for old paper, letters, books and images, both as reminders of the past and as bits of pattern, tone, line and shape. The text on them acts as both content and visual device. With each work, I select, arrange and collage these pieces creating both a support and pattern building on it with motifs that are suggested by words on the papers. Although I often start with an agenda I always allow each work to build its own image.
