Artist’s Statement

After 35 years as an art educator in the public schools, I have been working primarily on collage and mixed media in my retirement. I often say that I paint and sculpt with paper. I enjoy integrating discarded items, everyday objects and repurposing materials The result is artwork that is organic, multi-layered and textural. Inspirations include my midwest landscape, nature, angels, whimsy and abstract compositions.
