ARTIST STATEMENT

I use found vintage collage magazine media and film stills to create new imaginary surrealist landscapes. These figures and their relationship to color and space I hope convey the emotions that I feel in a world and life of hope, fear and curiosity. The narrative in these picture stories is left obscurre and humbly open to the viewers own imagination interpretation.
