I call my work "narrative collage." My art begins and ends with my writing, and many of the verses are narratives. Much of what I write about is drawn from my own life or experiences, a bit of something I've overheard a child say, or some odd or mildly profound thought that strikes me while I'm walking my dogs in the woods or driving home at night from a show. I continue to be amazed at the relevance that my humble thoughts and feelings have for other people, and I am grateful to be able to offer something that has meaning for others, brings out a burst of laughter or even a tear, or touches someone in some mysterious way. I am endlessly thankful to be able to do what I do and still keep body and soul alive--and I truly appreciate all the kind and wonderful comments I hear from those who like my work.
Here you can see many of my narrative collages, and order them, as well. It's a simple process. Look through and choose the ones you like. You may even choose colors by emailing me (click on CONTACT). You may specify blue/purple, red/orange, yellow/orange, green/blue, or earth tones. Or just order directly. Please note that these are all originals and the beautiful papers that I use come and go, so I cannot guarantee any particular paper or pattern on any of the pieces.
