Artist's Statement

I have photographed all my life, and more recently began building assemblages, or 3-d mixed media collages.
In the winter, I hook rugs. No matter the medium, I love working in vivid colors. The Fauves are some of my favorite painters.

My primary creations come in the form of words. My five books (none self-published) are all available at the Westcliffe Library. With luck, I've been able to design all five covers; my first and fourth books use my own black and white photos on the covers.
