Above: A theme I’ve visited often is "fictional portraiture".  Recently my series of "Visages" (faces) explore  self-expression through fashion. I use mixed materials including fabric, paper and found jewelry.

Being that I am passionate about all things coffee, it seemed natural to do an Espresso series. This one was my favorite so it hangs in our home, at least for now.

 

 
 
 
 

Right: Common themes in my work include repetition, vibrant color and geometry, as displayed here.  I like the idea that there is an orderly pattern, yet looking closely, each of these circle is unique. All together over 200 imperfect individuals come together create to create a larger composition, or a group dynamic.
