My most recent work includes large and small collages made up of colorfully painted paper as well as small packaged "paper novelties". My floral collages are simply about making something that I personally find beautiful to look at. Other figurative work may be inspired by something or someone I saw as I made my way through the day. It only takes a quick glance or a few seconds of eavesdropping and the rest is fiction — the end result would be unrecognizable to anyone but me. I make a few copies of each of the paper novelties by hand. I find the differences in each copy a fascinating documentation of the passing of time, and how we change slightly moment to moment.
