I am a collage and mixed media artist. My artwork tends toward the
use of vibrant colors and shapes and mostly depicts abstract images
(except for when an occasional bird is thrown in). Influences include more artists than I can count; an early exposure to Matisse's paper cut-out work stands out in particular. More recently the work of Xochi Solis out
of Austin, TX has had a huge impact. I love layering with paper, using lots of color and seeing what happens as a collage develops - it's exciting because the results are always a surprise. Originally from Jamaica Plain, I've been in Somerville now for 20+ years.
