I often think of myself as a tinkerer - making, collecting, repurposing, and combining - making something whole. Each piece is rich with detail and is made up of multiple layers of paint, textile, paper, and found and constructed objects. The many layers and focal points allow multiple points of entry and reward both sustained and repeated viewing.
