I pair vintage books and postcards with my dark sense of humor to create collages that delve into social issues.

I begin each series with an intent and then begin hunting. Once I establish a text source for a series, I do not allow myself to use any other sources.

The work is time consuming and the finished products often expose my dismal view of the world. :)
