Hello. I'm a collagist living and working in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I've been creating collages extensively over the past ten years and have shown my work in many galleries in the area in both solo and group shows. My inspiration comes from many sources and my goal is to make statements and commentaries on 21st century society focusing at times on the plight of the individual. To this end I use the methodologies of Dada, Surrealism, Magic and Social Realism, Minimalism and Pop to create what I feel are like stills from imaginary films where viewers are encouraged to create their own impressions from the works ranging from the specific to the abstract. Feel free to browse through the handful of works on display here, just a few out of hundreds I have created.
