Collages are important for me to make for myself on a personal level. They are the product of an incredibly therapeutic process in which I am able to explore my own experiences of mania, happiness, love, lust, and aloneness. With the images that I find and reconstruct, I create situations and environments onto which I can project my past and my present existence. Within each collage, specific imagery provides a more profound meaning for the viewer to consider. The situations and scenarios depicted are meant to provide a unique experience for both me and the viewer. The medium of collage allows me to construct a seemingly limitless amount of compositions while exploring important aspects of the human condition, which is vital to me as an artist.
