Merging collage, paint, ink, screenprint and photo transfer, I'm currently making mixed-media pieces working underneath and on top of Mylar sheets. In my work, I cut up and transfer layers of altered magazine photos onto plastic, and combine the resulting colors, shapes and textures with hand painted and drawn imagery. My media and content have shifted and expanded over time, but at its core my work has always been an expression of my efforts to understand the nature of what we think of as "true" or "real". 

I am obsessed with the commingling of the real and the fake, and I'm interested in the ways in which we respond to constant content.
