Cut Paper Assemblage  My art is a unique blend of paper cutting, painting and mixed media; industrial yet delicate.  I cut my images out of paper, paint them, layer  them, glue them, press them and then pound them to plywood with tiny nails.  Repeat.  The pieces then get clear coated and framed with my custom frames.  A bit maniacal, but surprisingly therapeutic.  My favorite part of my work is the way the nails catch the light in the room.


The imagery I am drawn to is that of the sciences: anatomy, botany, entomology, zoology and the combinations of them.  My influences are my collection of old books, nature and life.
