The use of simple shapes reminds me of the simple things in life and the things we do in repetition and rhythm that help maintain a stabilized existence. These repetitive acts ultimately create our personal rituals. I work with color as it relates to emotion and do my best to respect the quality of each hue.
The materials I use to create the collages are vinyl wallpaper, painted papers, foils, and acrylic paint. I cut each shape by hand and arrange them until they make sense.
