These altered playing card collages are so much fun for me. I enjoy the entire process which is pretty quick. The part that takes the longest and which is the most enjoyable is choosing the words. I pull a page out of a very old art book and scan the page for the words that jump out at me. They don't always make sense and I am okay with that. I have been making a set every morning for a little over a week. I still have more ideas so will continue until I don't.
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
