I have created mono prints and mono types for many years but the idea of cutting and collaging them arose in late 2014 after seeing a retrospective of Matisse cut-outs at the MOMA in New York.  I had an epiphany.  This new direction has taken me through a creative journey that has expanded my artistic repertoire.  My new work is an abstracted reflection of a myriad of images that has captured my imagination for years from art movements like Mid-century modern art; artists like Alexander Calder, Ellsworth Kelly; visual childhood memories growing up during the 60’s of furniture, buildings, commercial advertising, fashion trends, movies and television. My work is meant to arouse the senses, to conjure emotional states, to enliven curiosity, and to instigate the telling of a story.
