Collage: Paper on Paper.

Walking in my shoes isn't always as it seems
We all have our stories, our ideas, and our dreams
But from where I stand right now, your boots look pretty hollow
So that's why I will lead and you, my dear, will follow.
My work is usually spontaneous, and while my collages may seem simple, I tend to labor over each one for hours. ADD makes it very hard for me to organize, so finding just the right combination of colors and shapes is a challenge. Every piece I assemble is both a labor of love, and an obstacle to cross.

I am a lover of the unknown; of science fiction, and the idea that there might be others out there besides us. I tend to add satire and humor to my work, and I like to place things where they don't belong. I get enough realism in real life so I unwind by creating little escape hatches that are fantastical and dreamlike.
