Mixed media is a rich world of fantasy, clues, textures, and stories. Each element has a history in real life, as well as an imaginary history on the canvas. What does it represent? Where did it come from? Why is it here? Sometimes I know, and sometimes I don't. I select pieces based on their style, composition, color, pattern, and age. I love vintage items. Sometimes the pieces pick me. I often get bits and bobs as gifts from friends and family. Next I try out different combinations until things just seem right. I love sitting back in the end and making connections, as I hope my viewers will as they "read" the visual story from their unique perspective.
