Future Wanderings

With clues from the landscape, but no physical evidence, these digital collages have signposts, mark-making, and decisions embedded in their layers.  They represent the idea of us finding our way, of making different choices over time.

Unstable Ground

What does your internal landscape look like? I wish mine was soothing, but sometimes, it’s a jumble, full of trouble, mystery, adventure. Your labels may vary. Can a landscape be reassuring, and disturbing, at the same time? As we navigate our lives, through constant change, how can we stay balanced and focused, with a view…

Adaptive Horizons

Work that looks forward, and considers how we process change in our lives & surroundings. Spurred by a move to the city from the suburbs, I used my new view to capture urban imagery and tucked them into abstracted landscapes. These pieces incorporate digital composite textures, digital photography, scans of handmade collage, encaustic monoprints, and…

Here are detail images from the last several years, several of which have been used in larger compositions as well. This is a sampling from the series. Click any image…

Grids (2014-6)

Paper collages were scanned to use as base and intermediary layers, adding texture and abstraction to my usual photography; scans of printmaking and painting, as well as ephemera from my family history,…

Threads (2013)

We have all taken a journey, seen new horizons: we are all cut from the same cloth. Our history, our family, our transformations, have marked us with a common thread. These horizons try to incorporate that sense of lineage that is common to every family’s story. The textures in each of these pieces incorporate handmade…

Themes (2012)

Digital collage exploring new themes of minimalism, botanicals, and architecture.
