Select your print and framing options
Much of my work frequently consists of layered surfaces: bits and pieces from discarded books and magazines, found ephemera, antique postcards, handwritten letters and recipes, obsolete reference material, thrift store textiles, my own prints and drawings and mysterious random objects. Order, association and reverence emerge from the collecting, sorting, arranging, shaping and placement of each piece into a whole.
