This is an early print collage from 2004.
Another early collage from 2004/2005. This is a simple geometric exploration of the female form through collage.

The accompanying maps allude to the idea of Body MappingContinue reading “Cut Against the Contour”

Created during 2004/2005. Collages I made at this time were playing around with the idea of creating through the use of pairing deconstruction ofContinue reading “Collage (untitled)”
This is a print collage made from woodblock and linoleum block prints. The two mountain goats are poised facing each other practicing non-verbal communication. I wanted to celebrate those moments when two people are thinking about each other at the same moment and reach out to one another. Some times our communication is mediated throughContinue reading “Practicing Non-verbal Communication”
