In my collage work, I am inspired by stylish women in my life and around the world; ordinary faces and things found in old photo albums, magazines, and around town. I am nostalgic for family gatherings, women’s fashion in the early 1900’s and by personalities I meet day to day. My focus is on taking parts and pieces from current-day sources to create present moments, social commentary, and new personalities.
My work is uplifting and appealing where every face has a unique personality. It shows the deconstruction of beauty, an escape from reality. It’s built on mundane fragments of daily life communicated in a way that feels comfortable yet irrational.
