My collages are made from paper, photographs, drawings, text, fabric, and anything that lends itself to being transformed into something unique from its original usage. By rearranging unrelated and menial objects, I hope to produce images, which lead one to questioning their perception of reality and to pondering the infinite. These works are a composite of the old and the new, the broken and the whole, the destroyed and the restored, the diminished and disdained with the delighted and desired.

Background

​​While serving with the United Nations in Bosnia in the mid-nineties, I developed a concern for individuals from different cultures, and sought to find an artistic style to convey my spiritual journey, and also reach an audience with limited exposure to contemporary Christian images. I chose the mandala, an ancient design symbolizing the Universe, as an appropriate structure for spiritual contemplation. The intent is to create works giving the appearance of a dream interpretation while stylistically incorporating kaleidoscopes and stained glass windows with the mandala.
