Art Series

Patterns of Dress

Dress patterns are the primary medium in this collage series. Together with paint , maps and sometimes wallpaper, they become reincarnated into a whole new fashion.

Curious life of objects

Collected objects are the primary focus in this series of constructions. They are a 3-D environment created as a custom space just for the “little lives” they contain.

Topo[graphy]

Watercolors are the medium for this series of imagined topographical landscapes. They reflect the great beauty and variety of places found in nature.

Tin Collage

Cookie Tins and others for popcorn, biscuits and candies are the appetizing medium for this collage series. it’s a process of “painting” with tin and nailed onto door panels.

Shadow Boxes

3-D objects and collage under glass and built into a box are mediums that come together in this series. These shadow boxes, aptly named reflect some of the “darker” side of life.

Love Toys

Toy-like objects on wheels are the products of this series. They express the ups and downs of love in relationships. They range from the warm and fuzzy to the cold and prickly.

Unique Containers

The Vesselies

Containers for anything that are fun, lively, and unlike anything you have.  Need a place to hold your paper clips? or jelly beans? You might want to provide a home to one of these original and unique Vesselies.
