About

I graduated with a BFA major in graphic design, with minors in photography and art history. While pursuing a career as a graphic designer, I initially worked with altered photography as a medium for more creative expression.

Many moves made darkroom access difficult, so the artwork became more collage oriented. With a serious collecting habit, there is always a ready supply of material to work from. I am inspired by a background knowledge of art history and design, as well as a love for the quirky things I collect. My collages are about edges, juxtapositions, layers and overlaps. The works enable me to integrate these different aspects into the visual stories they tell, and allow me to relink creativity and working with my hands.

      Thank you – your puppets are fantastic. I would take every one of them home…especially the devil (I collect them).

    On another blog I see you were a picture framer while being an art student. It has helped me a lot at different times in my career as an artist…..one time owning a gallery/framing business. That helped me move to and live in New York for 15 years. Best wishes, Robert
