I’ve always believed that enchantment is all around us! Recently I began to work in paper and photographic collage to express my belief that magic can appear wherever we look. Beauty, mystery, whimsy, nature and fantasy can inspire solace, wonder and joy and I create captivating images in collage to share this understanding with others. I sell my original artworks as well as giclee prints, totes and canvas bags, home decor, and other gifts and accessories.
I studied collage with local artists and then started experimenting with layers of translucent paper products such as napkins and tissue paper. I tear the paper into tiny strips and shapes, and I use the pieces in much the same way someone would create a mosaic or tapestry. This layering process allows me to create a glowing, idyllic, and enchanted representation of gardens, forests, woodlands, and wildlife. I found myself creating a new style of artwork that communicates the deep spiritual connection we have with the Earth and the natural beauty that surrounds us.
