My collages are narrative and surreal. I enjoy creating fantasy worlds filled with giants, visitors from outer space, colossal horticulture, intergalactic playgrounds, mythic creatures and portals to other dimensions. Color also plays an important role in my work where I seek contrasts that entice the eye and brighten the mind. In my collages, anything is possible—the ground can be the sky, your head can be a flower, a bird can be a god.
